I'm not sure whether a 500W could suffice that, if so go with the Antec Basiq 500W. Otherwise look at some OCZs. They're relatively cheap.

A quality, inexpensive power supply would be the Antec Basiq BP500UB 500W as suggested by JogaBonito1502 for only $39.99. 500W should be plenty for that system.

If you want a bit more power, the OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W for $79.99 ($54.99 after $25.00 Mail-In Rebate) would be another great choice.

Screeching noise? Are you sure that's not a squealing cap on the new board? That seems the most likely cause.
