You could always just get oen of these:
Newegg.com - KINAMAX 1 FT USB to Serial DB9 (9 pin) RS232 Cable Model CB-RS232 - Retail

in my opinion its better to have the better quality motherboard.

I always recommend this for budget builds:
Newegg.com - FSP Group SAGA+ 400R ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail

And I use it myself. Never disappointed me.

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST350 ATX12V 2.2 350W Power Supply 115/ 265V - Retail

29.99 after mail in rebate Seems to have more amps than the fsp and it arguably looks better.

They have same amount of amps, but that Silverstone does look better.

I would go with the silverstone, but it does not have a pci-e conector, do you need one for a pci-e card?
Also, i decided on going with the abit board, but it has a 8 pin cpu connector, how does that work? PSUs only have a 4 pin.

Only if the pci-e card doesn't have a slot to plug one in then you don't need one. But with the 8800 cards they need one.

Do they make 4 pin molex to pci-e connectors so i could go with the silverstone? Because i plan on getting an 8 series card in the future.
