A quality 500W psu will run those specs no problem.
good - Corsair Builder Series CMPSU-500CXV2 500W

better- Antec High Current Gamer 520W 40A
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=56787&vpn=HCG%2D520&ma...
Best- 600-650W units with 5yr warranties from Antec,Corsair,XFX,and Seasonic(who oem alot of the aforementioned brands units)

Both will fit my motherboard right?
Also is thermaltake a good brand?
And is this a good psu http://www.frys.com/product/5045145?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN...

Not the best but far from the worst.
That's the best choice based on what Fry's is offering.
I see they have a typo Antec Basiq units have a 3yr warranty not 1yr.
I have an Antec Basic 350W unit that's been running for over 4yrs.
Low end Thermaltake and Coolermaster units are not recommended generally.
