Whats your budget look like?

Anything really 450 watts or better from a good company like Antec, Corsair, Seasonic will work fine for your system. I recommend getting at least a 550 watt unit for future upgrades of the video card.

Thanks to both of you. Along with the parts mentioned above I bought this Power Supply:

But then I realized that it might not have enough juice for my system. What do you guys think about that power supply?

If I need to I will return it and get a PSU with more wattage.

Thanks again.

God, I love noobs
I " assumed " nothing, I made a funny based on saaiello's question and the lighted fan on the psu, couldn't care less about your actual reason for the purchase.

I purchased it because of the reviews and price. But then I started to doubt wether the PSU had enough power. I was trying to stay under $50 for the PSU but that seems like a mere fantasy for a good quality 80+ PSU
