Im running an Athlon 64 3400+, 1.5 gigs of RAM, Raedon 9600 256MB, Asus K8V SE Deluxe, case with 5 fans. What would be a good power supply to go with this setup. Right now I have a 420Watt but my computer sometimes crashes and I think it maybe be due to the power supply, but I am not sure. Do you think 420Watt is enough?

Your system is very similar to mine except I have a Abit board. I have a Utra X Connect 500w it works very well. It is not only watts but amps on 12,5,and 3v rails that matters, amd recomends at least 18A on the 12v rail, some cheap 400w psu's only have 13A.

I recommend the Ultra 500w or Antec true 480w either of these will be perfect for your system.
