Yes. Most standard atx ps will work on all new boards. Antec, corsair, and ocz are good brands. Go for a bronze ps if you need to save some money. A 650w should be around $75 after rebate. 750 maybe $15-20 more.

Ok so just to be sure even though my motherboard says 24 pin power connector I can use a PSU with that says the connector is 20+4 pin?

Sure. There are still some old 20 pin boards out there, so the 20+4 is to break off the un-needed extra pins. I used a 20 pin connector on 24 pin boards with no problems (old antec 350w ps, still works).
