The PSU is not something you want to go TOO cheap on... just get a couple of Y-cable splitters and you should be good... If I may???

Default PSU solution

Hey i bought a 500watt psu for $30.00 but when i got it home i found out i didnt have enough 4 pin connectors. What i did is simply, on the last 4 pin connector, i poped out the pins using a small screw driver and added my own 4 pin connector buy opening little clips on the pins and closing them with the new wire inside. It is actually rather easy but you do need to get an extra 4 pin off of something!
