a good quality 500 watt power supply is perfect for this build. If you wanted to get anything like a 600 or 650 i wouldn't complain to you about it either

Thanks for the quick replies! that is an Awesome deal on the PSU...I am fine with getting an mATX Board(Not overclocking or anything special) But I am open to Using Dual GPU's if there is a decent Mobo for it. I see alot of people recommending Asus for MOBO is it the tried and true brand?

Yea ASUS makes good boards.. Some say the customer support sucks with ASUS but you get that with most any manufacture these days. Just depends on who you get on the phone..
