Hi Aljeebo,

I have a similar system and 350W is enough, but your video card could be a problem - it's a bit power greedy. If you have many USB devices you could be getting problems when running many things at once.

Thanks Snowguy, very useful website.

Thanks also mcwojtekk, but I think the customer has USB devices and the power wattage calculator recommends 400W - don't wanna risk it.
