    Thermalake is a good brand and 450w to 500w should be plenty. :knock:

    With Fortron and Sparkle, you wouldn't need as mucn wattage as other brands. If you can get higher than 350W+ of the 2 brands, they'll probably last a LONG time.

    FWIW, my Enermax 300W has been up for over 2 years. It's now in my family's Intel PC.
