Coolmax sells PSU-shaped objects that are not fit for purpose. On a tight budget, check out the Antec VP-450.
The GT620 is not a gaming card. Something like a HD7750 or GTX650 would be decent. If they're too high, get at least a GDDR5 version of the HD6670 or GT640.
What is your total budget for this system?

Id really like to stay around the 70 dollar mark for most parts, i know it wont get me the best i just want a cheap card that can play most games with low settings and a little lag here and there.

Yes, that is a GDDR5 version of the HD6670, and since you are willing to accept "Low" settings, I think you will be pleased to get a mix of low and medium out of this card.

(I know i could google it but id get mixed responses)

Since you are willing to play on lowered settings, I believe it will be.
