Personally I would never buy, or trust, a 20 dollar power supply.

 

Think about it this way; if CPU and RAM is the brain, the PSU is heart, lungs, kidneys and liver. :(

 

Visit these sites and pick a power supply that got a favorable review.

Take some time to research if the Realtek LAN and the VIA sound on that motherboard will work.

 

I'm not so sure about the sound, unless it works with VoodooHDA.

Quote. The power supply is very very important.

 

I think that you should spend al least 10-12% of entire budget.

Spend some real money on the power supply and get it from a quality brand name manufacturer like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic after all it is the most important part of a stable system.. That one you have there lists 25a on the 12v rail that is not a hell of a lot. Now the one rail design is a good thing it prevents you from having capacity trapped on a rail you can't use in a dual or higher rail system. When hopefully searching for a different one you want a power supply that has probably at least 40a on a single rail, ActivePFC and an 80%+ certification Here are a few below I found in the under $80 600-700w range personally I would go with the Seasonic out of the bunch they make one hell of a good power supply so much so that more than a few of the better name brands are usually theirs re-branded.

I have just bought a ANTEC Three HUNDRED[ The Two Hundred is great if you like its looks a bit lighter-thinner back panel]. $50 at Micro Center no rebates to mess with. Heavy but strong. Includes 2 big fans, room for 2 more. No PSU of course. I'm having PSU issues. I agree go with recommendations for a good one. So Many To Choose From-Isn't That Great?
