Default Just got new mobo/processor; how to upgrade?

Hey everyone!

Just purchased the following bundle:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...101&CatId=2018

And I want to make sure all of my hardware is ready for this! I have 1.25GB of RAM, a 200GB Hard Drive, and an AGP 128MB vid card. The main thing I'm worried about is my power supply. It's only 300W and I'm starting to feel as if it's time to move onto a better one.

Does anyone have any good ideas on a VERY reliable, cool, and CHEAP power supply that would support all of this (plus two CD drives/floppy drive)

Thanks!
