Need to choose a power supply

I need a new power supply because I've run out of SATA power connectors. Here's what I have in my build:

  • Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
  • Intel Core i5-3570
  • 2x4GB G.Skill DDR3 RAM
  • EVGA GeForce GTX550Ti
  • 5 SATA HDDs
  • 1 SATA SSD
  • 1 SATA Blu-ray drive
  • 3 System Fans that run on 4-pin Molex

Let me know if I'm missing any vital information.

My system typically runs 24x7. My current power supply is a 595W (I think - all of these specs are from memory ATM) What would be a good power supply for my setup, with a bit of wiggle room?

Unless what is posted above changes, plus adding four USB devices... Minimum: 416W Recommended: 466W

The XFX P1-550S-XXB9 has 9x SATA connectors and 6x Peripheral connectors listed.
