Default PSU suggestion

I could use a suggestion for a PSU.

IM gettin

dfi ultra-d mobo
AMD x2 4200
7800 gt or gtx (undecided could use some suggestions) graphics card

I guess my real question is do I have to have a different PSU to use the dual core cpu.

You do not need a different psu for the cpu. DFIs require more than 480W to operate stable. If you check out dfis forums at they recommend the ocz powerstream 520W for the all around best power supply. As for the graphics card, the gtx really isnt worth the extra money because it only increases the fps by 10-15. Get the gt and save the money and buy something better now or later.
