Well that sucks cause I didn't even get it at that great a price, it was like 45 dollars. I guess I should probably buy a new one, suggestions? Is the rest of the build good?

IMO, the best you can get price-wise is this: Newegg.com - Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

But I'm sure others can find better.

So what companies are good and which should I stay away from? Anything 80+ should be good right?

Most boards come with one IDE connection. And IDE drives are still being sold as retail, so they aren't dead yet. They are becoming more rare, though.

This is the 1st mobo I've ever owned that didn't have a IDE port. But I have a external IDE to usb enclosure I use on any IDE drives that come by.
