Wouldn't do it on a CM PSU.
But a Quality 500 would suffice.
Corsair Builder series or Antec Earthwatts.

I wouldn't even try. A quality 500w PSU would be the minimum.

Corsair HX650 is what you should get for a PSU would not go any lower.

Yeah I said 500w min, but personally I would go a quality 600-650w in my own rig with that setup.

The Builder series 500W would be more than sufficent. I run a Hell of a lot more than what he does on a HX650 and I only pull 450-477 from the wall.
