Default Appropriate Power Supply.

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego 2.4GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor - OEM
Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N761-AR GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail
Newegg.com - Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS Socket 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

This, coupled with 1 GB of RAM from my current set up, would overload my current PSU.
Since I'm not a genius in the PSU Department, I'm going to need some help choosing one.

If you're going to buy this set-up, which I assume you are, i would tell you to make some changes. I would not buy a SKT 939 MOBO- get a P35 DS3R and a Core2Duo ans OC the **** out of it. Dont get the 8600GTS- its a rip off- you would do much better with an X1950PRO OR an X1950XT. Change the HD to a Samsung SpinPoint and your set!

As far as a PSU: i would reccoment Rosewill/Xcilo/FSP(fortron) 500W. That will be a fine (and cheap) power supply!

Please don't tell me what I want. I know what I want. However, I don't know what I need to bring it all together, although I do know that the PSU should be around like 50 bucks.
Oh, and maybe a new motherboard too.

That should be a pretty good build. You are OBVIOUSLY on a budget, otherwise I would also say look into an Intel Core 2 processor. BUT, my gaming rig (see sig) is rocking an AMD 3500+ Venice CPU with no troubles, so good luck man!!

Also, right on with the Seagate drive... Seagate is #1 in the industry for a REASON...

thank you for backing me up.

@jive turkej:

Seeing as you 'know what you want', I suppose that you wouldnt want this GFX/CPU/MOBO Combination that would kill your proposed setup, for the same price, would you?

MOBO:
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR NF4UAM2G Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

CPU:
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail

GFX:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100176L Radeon X1950PRO 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail
