well OK,you are touchign limits. but this 420W has to be out of a very good manufacturer, as if u have decided for 420W. else recomended is 480W.

dont buy cheapo ones.

i think 420 is enough. The computer only uses like 350, but it is good to have more, just in case

I would get a new Thermaltake PSU. 500watt. I would also think about getting an rpm/temp gauge. Can get one to fit in your ROM Drive Bay witch looks pretty cool.
