    Personally I would suggest a higher rated PSU. If you're going to start putting all kinds of lights and fans onto a rig it is best to always have your power covered by a quality PSU. Those would be the likes of Antec, ThermalTake, and Ultra to name a few their are quite a few PSU's out there but these are the ones I usually stick by spceially Antec's. Hope that helps
