Default What works with 230 watt psu? AMD Pro2800A+?

I was interested in purchasing the Powmax MATX3304-S mATX and it comes with a 230 watt power supply. And I was wondering what kind of mobo and processor would be good in it. I found this for $104 and it looked like a pretty good deal but was wondering what kind of processor a Pro2800A+ was. Or if the 230 watt psu could even handle it or what could. Thanks

The 2800+ AMD is a good processor, but I would do something about the power supply. 230 watts just isn’t enough to power for modern CPU’s and graphics cards, I would suggest 350 minimum.

Um... hes talking about a Micro ATX power supply. I dont think they go higher than ~250W.

However, if you pay that much for a PSU you need to be shot. Enermax makes a 250W mATX PSU for $38 USD. That price is from www.newegg.com (always shop there if you can get what you need there, it doesnt get better- best company on the net).
System specs? Lets just get down to it people:
