Don't use the power supply that comes with the case, Instead Buy and use this one, you will not be dissapointed.

Spend $30 more and buy the 3700+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103539 It has twice as much L2 cache. Many people use this and are very satisfied with it.

Why not use the power supply that comes with the case? It's bigger.
