    This PSU calculator should help. http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculator.jsp

    Remember wattage is not the only important rateing Amperage (A) on the 12V line is also extremely important. The psu should also be from a quality brand (Antec,Enermax,FSP,PC Power & Cooling,Seasonic) many cheep brands overrate their PSUs and lack protection circuicts.
