A good quality psu around 400w is all you need.

Good budget psu's of quality build i usually recommend is these two.

Corsair CX 430 V2

Antec EA 380D/430D

And if you have a bigger budget and want something really efficient...

Fanless series is considered one of the best and I do tend to agree with you but considering he wants an AMD build most likely he is vying for a very budget build.

The Antec Earthwatts 380W PSU is excellent. It's actually made by Seasonic a top tier PSU manufacturer.

But be warned Earthwatts PSUs do NOT come with a power cable, that has to be bought separate(usually around 4.99)

Antec EA 380D's are actually made by Delta hence the D on it. Still of great quality and build but nothing really is on par with seasonic stuff.
