Windows 7: Have enough power/wattage?

Have enough power/wattage?

Alright, I have 6 fans in my computer that are led and I plan on changing them.

At the moment I have an i5 2400, SSD, HDD, GeForce GTX 550 Ti, 8gb DDR3 RAM, DVD drive, 4 120mm blue led fans, and 2 140mm led fans. This is all being run by a 630W PSU.

Now the reason I'm asking if I have enough power is because I plan on switching the 6 led case fans to regular non-led fans, adding a fan controller, and getting the NZXT RGB HUE.

Do you think the 630W PSU will suffice or would I need something better?

Also, what are some good 120mm and 140mm fans that aren't too expensive? Hopefully black or white fans/fan blades. One or the other, or both.. doesn't matter. I just don't want something that's not going to match my case.

I've done both, but that doesn't seem right for the calculator. 371W for everything I mentioned?

Also, the fans aren't too easy to pick out. I want something with decent airflow and quiet.

6 case fans is too many for 1 desktop computer. They're just fighting each other, giving less air flow through the case than two, 1 inlet & 1 outlet. 2 will make a lot less noise than 6. Power is not an issue, each fan probably draws 0.25A.

I have two front, two top, one bottom, and one in the back. At the moment, there's no issue with noise with what I have. Whether or not having six fans wasn't my question though. No one has seemed to answer me directly.
