  1. According to AMD's website it requires 125 watts

    However its usually the graphics card that requires the most power. Usually for a single card, and a CPU a good 500w+ PSU is enough. This obviously depends on what graphics card you will be using though, if any at all.

    Alternativly, check out this PSU calculator:

  2. Well at the lowest end for pretty much any build:
    Antec EarthWatts 380D $39.99 at newegg atm.

    It will power any CPU pretty much and up to 1 PCIe connector graphics card.

    But yeah as said above generally it's good to go with a good PSU in the 500W range. So you won't be drawing out max power all the time.
