If your going cheap, that is a decent power supply, however I would look at a 480 watt thermaltake if your using alot of hard drives or anything.

Looks good

you'll probably need a higher end 500 watt to keep that thing alive. Here's a website I used to determine how much power I'd need.

Good luck

Wattage isn't the only factor when considering a psu. DJ Chris's isn't the best, 18A on the +12V isnt' the best. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182004 has 34A on the +12 rail

see if you like this one http://xoxide.com/aeropower.html there is definitely something on that website you would like and if you want a quiet pc make sure the psu has 2 fans or is fanless as some are. make sure it has enough connectors for ya though
