I would highly reccomend a power supply upgrade / the raidmax is a horrible low quality unit




Corsair

thermaltake toughpower (only the toughpower)

coolermaster real power pro (only the pro)

Silverstone


any one of these units in 650 watt or more would be great




if you have a tight budget >>>>> look to mwave.com / click on refurbished/ click on power supplies and cases


then look for one of the brands and models I listed >>>>>> dont get suckered with anything other than the ones I listed at the refurb section >>>> they often have some awesome deals but there is alot of trash in there too! ask more questions if you are not sure

my personal pick would be TX-650 watt Corsair
