Most people would recommend a different brand than Raidmax for a PSU. As a really bad PSU can wind up taking out several components (or the entire computer) when it dies, you should probably consider the more respected brands for your power supply. Seasonic, Power PC & Cooling, Corsair, Antec, XFX, and some Rosewill are pretty good. With what you have listed, you shouldn't need anything more than a 600w PSU.
