Rosewill seem to have a good reputation for power supplies for the price:

ATX 2.01 Upgraded, Dual 12V Rail Power Supply
Rosewill RV450S-2 ATX 2.01 450W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CSA, TUV, FCC - Retail

I think you need more power. Go all out with this one:

Antec TruePower 2.0 TP2-550 EPS12V ATX12V 550W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, TUV, CB, FCC CLASS B, CUL - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103932

That's my future power supply right there unless I can find a 600watt one. That one should be good for you.

Yes, no way that PSU would run 2.
