personally I would go with something with a little better rails in the power line. for a decent psu expect to pay around $60 (american) and up. I just bought an Aspire 500w with all the bells and whistles and lights and paid like $59 or something.

I say, the bigger (or in this case, more powerful) the better. If you ever plan to upgrade, you will already have the power to do it with if you get a powerful PSU. I'd say nothing under 400 watts. I can't reccomend any brands because I do not know enough about the different brands.
