My power supply is a Cooler Master Elite Power 400w (rs-400-psar-i3).I know that this psu is not a good one but i don't really want to change my psu at this time.And I also have an SSD in my system.

wattage isnt the issue with that unit. its the quality and lack of quality and also probably protections. not to mention the fact that PSU most likely breaks ATX spec in multiple ways (edit: based on the placement in the PSU tierlist)

would suggest to look at swapping that as soon as possible

My sig has a link to a posting regarding good and not-so-good quality PSUs.

Admittedly, availability might be an issue in Bulgaria, so you might not be able to get some of the ones that we might recommend in the US, for example.
