Default PSU Help

Hey, I'm going to be getting a new computer, and I'm trying to make it as cheap as possible.. anyway... the PSU I'm getting is here(comes with the case, the info on the PSU is on one of their pictures..) http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811147001

Somebody tell me if that PSU will work for a 3800+ x2, like a x850xt, 1gb ram, some fans.... 1 hd, 2 opticals...

Will I be able to use it?

It won't power your x850xt. Don't get a cheap PSU, its one of the most important components in a computer. A bad PSU can take out an entire system - leaving you with nothing.

But you see, I really need to go cheap with this stuff... I can't find a good case/psu combo or 2 seperate pieces that are cheap enough to actually get... I'm look for 50 between them.

It doesn't have to be able to upgrade in the future, I just want it to run the stuff I currently have..

the Thermaltake PSU's are some of the better ones around

I'm really looking for a minimum.. I don't need that great of a PSU, one that runs my stuff. I won't be upgrading anytime soon, probably won't be overclocking(MicroATX mobo, probably doesn't OC well..)

I mean, I don't plan on getting one of those new high end video cards, or the g80s...
