Default Power supply recommendation

I recently upgraded to a amd fx 8320 and a gigabyte GA 990-FX ATX Mobo. I also have a nvidia 560 gtx 2gb, intel 180 gb ssd, 1 tb, and a 3 tb hdd. I had a diablotek 575 watt power supply and left the machine on all night. This morning I come back and it is off. After plugging in a another power supply, the machine is up and running. How many watts of a power supply do you recommend? I am going after work to grab a corsair or evga power supply. Thanks in advance

A CX600 or Seasonic S1211 620w will do the trick. Lean more towards the Seasonic and stick away from lower end eVGA units.

Have you tried testing temps?

yeah, my temps seem to come back fine I had the hwmonitor program running. Underload around 45-55, idle around 19-25.
