Pee into the Wind...
400w will be underpowering your system.500w will be minimum for this system I guess.Also check out the amperes on +12v railing on your SMPS.This is what will matter more than anything else.Minimum for your config should be around 25 A.If your SMPS has 2 or more +12v railings,like +12v1,+12v2....Just add up all the amperes given next to them to get the total.
