As many power supply reviews show you could get away with 500watts. I would suggest a high end 550 like a Corsair or a 550-600watt like a Silverstone or the like to be safe and future proofed.

My system is similar , except i have less drives.I bought a 600watt OCZ stealthxstream.You should get something like that, since you have 4 +12v @ 18 amp rails. good for future upgrades.the corsair HX520 is nice too.

Different model correspond to the different class of PSU OCZ has. Pro, Game and Stream are their "performance" non-modular PSUs while the ModXstream and Evostream are their performance modular PSUs.

You can see OCZ's full PSU lineup here: OCZ Technology | Products | Power Management
