I wouldn't suggest skimping on the psu, there are some good psus out there that are cheap, not as cheap as the one you listed, but close to it if you catch a good deal with a rebate...

well it doesn't seem like he would be upgrading and the system doesn't need a big PSU. So does it make sense of a better brand at his point? Not to prove a point, i just want to know
