PSU incompatible, need opinion.

http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/VthH is my parts. I recently purchased my PC, only to put it together and find it doesn't work. I called out tech support, they swap out the PSU, and it works a charm. Seems that the power supply wasn't great enough. Turns out it blew the CD drive/hard drive too, they no longer work. Can someone tell me which PSU is right for the build? Maybe it needs more power, or something.

Go with a Sea sonic(XFX is a rebranded Sea Sonic) or a Corsair 650w (TX, HX,or AX)

Wouldn't a corsair 650w be a lower power? I thought it might need more. But i'm probably wrong. I'd also love links if you could provide them, sub-info on brands isn't exactly a speciality of mine.

If it blew out your cd drive and hard drive, it is not a case of too low power. Sounds like poor current regulation or surge protection to me. Or perhaps some of the caps blew.

Though perhaps a problem with the molex/sata power because only your hard drive and dvd drive blew out?
