My 2p rig (same as yours) pulls about 300w from the wall, under full load.

Get a 500W and that will put you in the Optimal Efficency of most PSU's these days.

I always see brand names like rosewill and Fps that I don't really know about how Do I know if they are any good.
There are so many hardware companies that use other name brands that just Brand them with there company name it is confusing.
