PSU Advice

Today my computer switched off whilst playing a game, and before it did the screen went black. I checked temps and I don't think that was the issue so I think its my PSU.
I've got the barebones bundle from novatech i posted I while back here http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/barebone-bundle-amd-ii-x4-640-3ghz-quad-core-4gb-ddr3-1333mhz-amd-760g-motherboa/865436
I added a 1tb f3 and a sapphire hd 5770 which I imagine can push the basic 400w PSU to its limits?
I would like to replace it with a good 550W+ PSU... what should I get?
Thanks in advance :)

ATI have the PSU as to low for that graphics & so yes you need higher Branded PSU.

450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

Thanks, I'd like to stick a second HD 5770 in at some point so I guess I should go for a good 600W+
Any suggestions?

You've sorta of just persuaded me to wait for a good deal to come along :D
Dropped my game fps by half to relieve that stress to graphics so it won't need extra power and disabled ati overdrive - hopefully this will stop my PSU struggling for a couple of weeks :)
