You would want something a gamer would use. See the following article for some suggestions on high end power supplies.

Best Power Supply for Gaming
+1. According to this: https://www.newegg.com/tools/power-supply-calculator/ my build components need 304 watts. I am using this Titanium fan-less PSU: https://www.newegg.com/seasonic-prim...82E16817151235 So far it seems like 700W works great for this build. I originally shopped for more watts, but ultimately went for this 700W titanium & true fan-less model. Pricey but a solid PSU with a 12-yr warranty.
