What psu do i need for asrock g31m-s

Hi i have a asrock g31m-s(fsb 1600,ddr2 800, dual channel) motherboard i have had problems with my psu
my pc kept blacking out & switching off, restarting etc.. Now it refuses to turn on :( I think its to do with the psu not being powerful enough??
the psu my pc came with is a FH-Power supply, Model:450w (Ac input: voltage: 115v :current :frequency
230v 8A 50 - 60hz
4A
I also have a aardwolf fan for the motherboard! Anyhow i guess i would like to know if the above stats are good enough for my pc?? As, i am thinking of getting a 500w psu called: thermaltake TR2 W0093. Would this be good enogh for my motherboard?? And is the psu the proplem why my pc does´nt work?? It would be great if someone in this forum could help me it would be much appreciated. Oh, by the way, my graphic card is a (geforce 9600gt OS: windows xp home 4g ram )

thanx in advance and have a great day :)

More about what asrock g31m
  1. I would get an antec, corsair, seasonic, enermax, or ocz in 400-500w; cheap brands often overstate their capabilities and fail under load. Quality brands are tested properly and don't overstate their limits.
  2. Youe system would run on 300 watts no problem, but the cheapo no name units tend to fail quick and can't output nearly what they say.

    Dont get the TR2 they are crap this 430 watt unit from Corsair has about the same power and it is much better quality.
