Default PSU build?

Hey guys,

I'm planning on building a computer. The build is as follows:

Intel Q6600
4gb 1066mhz RAM
Ati HD 4870
Samsung 500gb HD
LG DVD drive
ASUS P5K Pro Mobo
Zalman 9500A cooler

I'm confused as hell on the case and PSU. I was thinking of getting the Antec Sonata which comes with a 500W Earthwatts PSU. My friend says even though it is 500W it is quality and will run my system.

If not that case, I don't know which one or what PSU. My budget is 100-200 AU dollars.

Any help would be really appreciated!

The Antec Sonata case with the Earthwatts 500W power supply would be an excellent choice. Plenty of power for your system and great quality.

The HD 4850 requires only a 450W PSU so you'll be just fine with that case/PSU combo.
