  1. Any quality 450-500watt and up will run it so look for Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, PC power & cooling, Enermax or XFX to name few quality brands.

    Hi - here a some for you to consider, any of these will work with your system:

    http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=8638

    http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=7318

    these 2 within your budget - removed one that had only 1 pci-e connector

    a couple good one's close to your budget limit:

    There isn't a lot on this site I'd recommend in the $75-80) range


    I like either of the last two for your build @ < $80

    The $74 Neo Eco is the best of em and is within your budget.
  4. These Antec HCG got good reviews but a little over your budget http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=4949
