No, the PSU is not compatible because it does not have any PCIe Auxilliary power connectors for use with your GPU. You need to spend a little more money on the supply and get one that will last you for a while. Here are a couple of suggestions: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Don't waste your money on a poor quality PSU that will likely fail and may take out your quality components with it. Spend more that $40 on a decent quality supply.

The Corsair that I recommended is the cheapest PSU that I would use. I put one of those in my dad's computer and it works great. It has similar specs to yours except for the graphics card. DON'T cheap out on the PSU because poor quality PSU's often don't output their rated voltages and currents. This can cause your PC to be unstable and even damage your new motherboard, CPU, Graphics card, Memory, HDD and anything else connected to your computer that uses power from the PSU. Stick to good quality brand names such as Seasonic, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, OCZ, XFX.

Even if it were, thats a very poor choice of PSU. Power supplies are not a place to go cheap.

$25 after mail in rebate. thats about as cheap as I would go.

I'm also not a big fan of that motherboard, its far too cheap and has lousy reviews. as it should being so cheap.

At bare minimum, this is as cheap as I would go:

Cheap 500GB hard drive

Although for not much more you could have double the capacity:

I'll settle for the PSU and i'll get the 1tb hdd but I already ordered the Motherboard today so ordering another one is out of the question.

Well, my suggestion is, to send it back. Tell newegg or whoever you bought it from that it doesn't POST and you want to exchange it for a better quality one. I'm not trying to be a jerk, that thing is garbage.

If I stick with it and put the PC together are there any Cons for having such a cheap Motherboard?

Yes.

1. It could die on you in a year, conveniently it only has a 1 year warranty.

2. It might not even work at all.

3. Lacking power phases and voltage stability. (Important if you ever plan to overclock your Phenom II)

4. Did I mention it might die on you in a year?

5. No SATA III

6. No USB 3.0

7. Only 2 DIMM slots

8. Read the reviews here, that board has a bad reputation of stability issues

9. Oh.. and it probably will die on you in a year. It also only has a 4 pin 12V CPU power connector. Modern CPUs use 8. The implications of that means that the system may not perform as well as it could.
