    a 500watt PSU would not really do it for you. As allangallop already suggested, the more wattage the better. Don't be afraid of a big wattage like a 720watt PSU. It won't burn out everything, the computer will draw only what it needs of that. Shaw is a very good brand to use. I have a Shaw 720w PSU and it powers all my components very well.

    on all those products, especially if you have the box, it should say how much is requireed to run them, if you dont know the wattage look up the product wattage on the google.

    and always get a higher wattage then you need just in case, and also its good if you might add something else to computer later that is higher.

    usually nowadays, a good 500 watt will do for most computers.

    Ideally the more Watts the better as you never know what you might add later. They will include power cables. OEM & Whitebox range power supplies are usually very cheap, however proffesional branded power supplies can get expensive.
