when checking out psus I always google reviews, and in one of the reviews for that specific model Coolmax psu it actually exploded, the 500w Antec Basiq is a great psu, it ran my system without any problems until I recently upgraded to an Antec True Power Trio 650w, also, molex to SATA adapters are cheap, about $2 a pop...

I second AR's Antec Basiq 500W choice as far as quality goes. You might want to go modular if your case is really small. If I'm not mistaken the Antec Neo line is modular.
