First, newer components take less power than older ones, so you don't need as much power as you might think.

Second, by quality brand ct meant something like corsair, seasonic, or antec. Alpine is not a quality brand. Look for a powers supply that is 80plus (bronze, silver, gold, or platinum) certified.

550w should be enough, but you could get a little more if you're overclocking.
