I'd say that rig would use up about 485W - 500W.

The CORSAIR 620HX would be a very good PSU for you.

Also look into the Corsair VX550W if the HX620 is a bit too pricey.

about 600w would be good, plenty of brands to. Corsair, Gigabyte PSUs. You just need decent amp per rail.

You have to pay attention to the 12 volt rails, total amps are important
