That PSU receives my HELL NO, see the little red switch? Thats a very bad sign. Get one from corsair, antec(not the basiq), seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, or OCZ. If you see a little red switch on any power supply skip it and move on. If you are curious why you dont skimp on a PSU watch this video from corsair, its rather entertaining.

Check my "Recommend Builds by Usage" thread in my signature. I think my budget build fits with your needs, just based on your original post.
