Unhappy My new comp... Error

Please Read Through It All,
I just recently upgraded my computer...
I put everything in it..
6800gs
450watt Xion powersupply
Neon Lights
3 new 80mm fans
2.8 prescott Pentium 4 HT

I tried to put everthing in it, then i found out i didnt have enough power to power it all... the powersupply only had 4 (4pin) connectors) and it couldnt power everything....
I then tried adding another powersupply + found out that that wasnt possible, to have two powersupplys going on at the same time... but im afriad if i get 4 pin splitters it couldnt support all of the devices and fans i have in my case..

Once i got rid of my DVD burner and some of the neon lights.. i found that my Cpu Cooler didnt fit my new motherboard..
I got a cpu cooler from newegg and it didnt come with a retentsion bracket to fit it on the cpu... (heres the link)
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835103426

I tried to use another cpu cooler and it didnt fit.. but i taped it so it would hang on. That wasnt a good idea.. it worked for about 4 mins b4 shutting off cause of the cpu was gettin too hot

So i need to get a new cpu cooler or get the retention bracket around $30, thats perferably (70, 80, or 90mm fan compatable)
and i need to get a good powersupply around or less than $50
i would perferably like to get everything at newegg.com

Thanks for giving me any links/support

Rosewill's have gotten a lot better then they had been. Caught a lot of flak a while back about getting one but the voltages were stable as can be and it still powers my intel box (Power hog!!!!!! )
