You would probably be better off getting another brand PSU instead of wasting money on a dead platform.

I wasn't saying that. I was saying that it's pointless to buy a new board for a dead platform unless you can find one cheap and you intend on keeping that CPU/board for a few more years.
Anything Seasonic in the 500w range.
