maybe a 600w-700w psu would be better , but its not just wattage that counts its also down to how many amps on the 12v rail as well ,
just check the specs and make sure it has a simmilar ammount of amps as that one you have now , and pick a decent branded one out

What's your budget? This PSU is the cheapest really good one you'll find:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371002

Although it says it has 3 +12V rails, it's really only 1 +12V rail with 54 amps. Plenty of power to run whatever you need.
