Get a Fortron Source 500W. I got it and love it, the first time I have ever had rails this strong.

All 3 you listed are good brands. Pick the one you want. I would say 400W+.

IMO the only good fortrons are the 400 Watt and 450 Watt versions, I don't hear many reviews for the higher wattage ones.

For that Setup a 550 Watt Antec Trupower II would do Nicely.

I'd say go for the 450w to 500w region, I hear OCZ are a good quality PSU.

The True Power would be better since the 520 Modstream doesn't have dual 12V rails.
