    I would say something around 700-800 Watts.

    Fill in this online calculator which will give you an accurate assessment of how much power you require from a power supply http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorli...

    A PSU is perhaps the most important component of any computer. DO NOT scrimp on it and get a cheap one. You should be looking to get a reputable brand like Corsair, Antec or Seasonic.

    you can get PSU from 460 w from about $50 AUD, I almost got a 550w for $54 at Netplus, but that was stocktake but you mat still get a bargain? With a a 1Gb Graphics they recommend the PSU be 400w or better, so ther is your benchmark?

    The perfect size would be 600W or a little more. Your video card requires 500W, but you need to add a little to allow for capacitor aging.

    Try this one:

    68 bucks after rebate is not bad at all...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... Cheap and reliable, if you go for something else atleast make sure it is an 80+ power supply.

    I believe 240 would be sufficient. Take a look at newegg.com and find a power supply around 240.
