Default Will this power source work? (need speedy response... want to buy it tonite)

Ok...
So, im trying to build a decent computer, and the power source gives off too little energy fot the graphics card i want in this computer. This is the first time i have built a computer, but a friend told me that if my power was too low for the demands of the graphics card, then i would fry everything. so... at newegg, i need to know if a

POWMAX PSAG480A ATX 480W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CB, CE

will work in my barbebones kit, the

Shuttle XPC SK22G2B AMD Socket AM2 AMD Athlon 64 FX/Athlon 64/Sempron/X2 VIA K8M890CE 2x 240Pin VIA Chrome9 IGP Barebone

I know all the other parts work with it, and if this power source wont work, please post one that will.... i really wnat to get to ordering parts tonight. hahaha

Thanks all,
squirrellym

Don't think so, but I advise against POWMAX cases/PSUs. The PSUs blow, and the cases scratch WAY too easy.

These people even have pictures of their child labor factories in China on their website!

we need to know ALL the components you plan on using to reccomend the power requirements for the power supply. i don't have time to look up the power supply you listed but shuttle's are what are known as "SFF" pcs or Small Form Factor. as far as i know you need a special psu to fit inside the case because they are so small

any idea on a power supply of at least 450w that would work on this?
