yeah, that's fine. It is not very future proof for upgrades other then small ones, but it would get the job done.

Yeah, that's a good one Not very future-proof, but will do you. Keep in mind it's $20 cheaper after rebates.

This is a good deal, id go for that instead, a bit more future proof... Although i did not check any reviews (before buying it you might want to, but it should be fine)

Newegg.com - OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

if you need/want to bring down the cost for the computer some, this would be an option, it is leaps and bounds better then the generic but would not be my first choice.

I'll stick with the Corsair... Does it have the right connectors needed? I know on that mobo there is an 8 pin connector by the cpu socket.. Is this not needed?

That is a good choice, but why so adamant?
