This is supposed to be a budget PC (500€). Any improvements you want to share are welcome. My real question is what kind of PSU should be able to handle this? Haven't built a system in quite a while... and I'm using an american site for language purposes.

CPU: Athlon II X4 640

Motherboard: Asus Evo 870

Ram: Kingston ValueRam DDR3 1333 (4GB)

Video: ATI HD 5770 (its supposed to be the Eyefinity model, sorry)

HDD: 1GB

Now, my gut tells me that a 430W PSU will do the job. But usually my decisions aren't always the brightest.

A good 430W would work, though I would recommend going with antec 430w Earthwatts, Corsair 550VX or SeaSonic S12II 520w

You'll probably want one of the latter 2 if you plan on OCing.

430W it is, and there won't be any OCing. Thanks for the advice!
