Welcome to OCC Anthony,

 

 A 750 Watt power supply is listed as min. required in your Graphics Cards System Requirements, that is the safe min. rated power supply for your complete system and allowing for some head room,.. that is what I based my recommendation on  ,..  http://www.sapphiret...&pid=2023&lid=1#  

 

 

My overall choice for quality, reliability would be  : http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817151132

Corsair CXM Series 750W CP-9020061-EU (Modular) or Enermax NAXN 82+ 750W - ENM750AWT (Modular) is better?

Hey Anthony.  A couple other to consider;

 

For price to performance and build quality;

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817182073

 

This is a bronze rated power supply and I don't normally recommend (or use dual rail power supplies myself) it's hard to overlook this one;

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817580003

 

And as a general rule of thumb, just about anything built by Seasonic in that power range........................

 

750W is overkill for your current specs, but it will leave you some breathing room

No....  Raidmax is junk.

 

We already gave you some viable options from reliable brands with excellent performance, build quality and reliability.  Plus it's unlikely that any of the power supplies previously mentioned will fry any of your other gear if they go out.

 

Buy and use Raidmax at  your own peril.

 

If you absolutely need a modular power supply, get this one;

Enermax units have great quality but are often very expensive. How much price difference between both units??

If you intend sticking with a single graphics card then 500W is more than enough. (Up it to 750W if you intend doubling up the cards).

 

The Seasonic SSR-550RM currently at $85.99 on Newegg would be a great choice.

 

Just stick to the mainstream manufacturers like Corsair, Enermax, XFX, Seasonic, etc, and you can't go wrong. Raidmax isn't a wise choice.

Pretty much any of them aside from the Rosewill. I'd lean towards either of the SeaSonics and then the Corsair, personally.
