More about choosing build
  1. The cheapest and BEST I can show you is

    Antec EarthWatts Green 430 watts- 39.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371034

    I'm telling you sir, you do not want to gimp out on Power supply. You want one thats very good brand such as:

    Antec
    OCZ
    Sliverstone
    PC power and cooling
    Crossair
    Seasonic

    You're also going to want to look for: 80 plus {brone, silver, gold, platnium} 80 plus anything really. That assure you that you'll get the power you're looking for.

    Buying shitty PSU is very harmful for your computer.
    -High heat output
    -not always the same watts as package says
    -Fry your computer components
    -Cause a fire
    -many other uncountable stuff bad PSUs cause


    ***HOWEVER*** if you want to get a PSU thats under 25 and ignore the warning...at your own risk...well here are your options anyone of these crappy ones will suit your need.

    You're looking for anything above 350 watts.

    No.

    Why build a gaming machine if you don't want to pay for a quality power supply to drive it? Look, you're spending hundreds on computer equipment. You can pinch pennies elsewhere but don't skimp on the power supply.

    For this build I would recommend a 500W PSU, its more than you'll need but it will allow for upgrades over the next couple of years. Antec is a fine place to start, those others mentioned above will also do well. Do some research before buying.
