Do I really need a 90 dollar psu or could I get by with a cheaper one?

i suggest a high quality psu. better to have the best "core" components (like mobo, psu, etc) and cheap out on things like the cpu than get stuff like a cheap psu/mobo and a nice cpu. hope you kinda get my jist. my antec true550 works awesome and was $100 at newegg. money well-spend imo

If your not running SLI, a 420 watt thermaltake TD-420AD would do

The power supply is one of the most important pieces to a reliable
system and one that is the most overlooked until you start having
problems. Pay the money and get a trusted name brand and if you
are at all forward looking I would get as close to 500 watts or better, you will need it later, you always do.

I have been real happy with the Antec "True" series PSU.

www.tomshardware.com has done extensive PSU reviews &
comparisons, give it look if you like.

I also agree that 1Gig of RAM seems the standard for modern PCs.

Happy Birthday-----belated????????
