Here is my build.

Intel Pentium E2160 Allendale 1.8GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80557E2160

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard

ADATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model AD2U800B1G5-DRH

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

I am wondering what cheap budget power supply would be good for this build? This is a reminder that this build is old and I haven't taken the time to fix it due to certain circumstances, but now i finally decided to fix it.

400-500 watts is plenty. I recommend one of these brands: antec, ocz, corsair, seasonic, or enermax. All are tested properly and rated correctly for max loads. Newegg has this deal: The 500w version is $40 after rebate.

Those newer power supplies have 8 pin connectors for newer boards, but they split up into two sections so you can use one for your 4 pin board. It will work fine. The 4 pin only fits one way; simply line up the clip side to the clip side on the board; it will slide in easy when lined up correctly. Some ps have both the 8 pin and 4 pin. Here's another ps:

Yes, if you don't get greedy; if your default cpu fsb in the bios is 200, try 240 or 250 for the fsb setting.
