Default Which Heatsink should I get / Will this power supply work?

Which heatsink is better for cooling this motherboard: ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ATX AMD Motherboard

This Heatsink: THERMALRIGHT XP-90C Heatsink

OR

This Heatsink: THERMALRIGHT XP-120 Heatsink

AND

Would this power supply work with the above motherboard (I was unsure about connectors and pins): ASPIRE ATX-AS520W BLACK 520W Power Supply

Thanks for your help,
Craig

Yeha the PSU is a 24-pin ATX2.0 compliant psu. However, I wouldn't reccomend using it. Look into Antec, OCZ, or Enermax power supplies.

Can you recommend a good power supply (possibly with blue lights and 500+ watts) within that price range? I would prefer it no more than 15 to 25 dollars more than the ASPIRE Power supply.

And what about the heatsink? Which is the best one of the first post of my topic?

They will both work very well. I would get the 90c just because it's smaller (still huge).
