Not alot actually a quality 400+W would work but common sense would dictate 500+ W for future expandability.
What's your budget?

What's your budget?

around $50 (much better if less) :) 

and yeah I'm not planning to upgrade for more than 2 years :) 

would a 450w suffice?

i would recommend spending a little more on a PSU, as it directly effects every unit in your system, and could fry any single or multiple combination of hardware. But, if $50 is all you have, i recommend these:

These being my top 2, but these will also do:

all of these are under $50 after MIR. Please don't skimp on your PSU. You will regret it.
