Need help with choosing right PSU/MOBO

Hi,

Just decided to buy AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4 Ghz. The problem is it runs at 125 W so,

I need a new mobo and probably a new psu.

ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2 Amd 760G DDR3 1866MHz Vga 16x AM3+ would be my first choice for 50 $ what do you think about it ?

Next is psu,

I don't have any idea about psu or how it works. The only and most basic thing in my rig that i don't have any clue about . So i will be needing your suggestions to support my new Phenom and mobo.

Thanks
