  1. It really depends on your setup. For a HTPC/Office/Family machine, the lower end Seasonic's are very good. If it's for a gaming machine, perhaps look at the Corsair CX series and XFX Core series. The XFX ones are probably better but a bit more expensive.
  2. The sizing of the psu is determined by the graphics card/s. Without a discrete graphics card, you only need 250w or so.

    One of the best budget psu's is the Corsair cx430:
    At $25 after rebate, it is hard to beat:

    Regardless, do not go cheap on quality in a psu.
    Look for Corsair, XFX, Antec, PC P&C, or Seasonic of the appropriate size and you will not go wrong.
