Any new standard ATX PSU will work fine with that motherboard.

Personally I use a Corsair AX-850, but depending on your setup. More than likely anything over 550 or 600W will be sufficient.

I personally prefer Corsair, but I know they are pricey.

Stay away from the really cheap PSU's as they can have issues.

You don't base a power supply buy on a motherboard your base it on your GPU. That will tell you how many watts you need.

Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Coolng, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec and the higher efficiency Rosewill units for quality. You can find a good unit as cheap as if not cheaper than a junk model. Avoid Coolermaster and Thermaltake. Although "name" brands they are known for very bad power supplies.

As said above any standard ATX power supply will fit your board.

+1 on what others have said on the quality psu. If you don't buy quality you will pay for it later.

Just so we are clear, the psu does not go on the motherboard. It sits either above it or below it depending on the case. It is the case that depends on how it all fits.
