This is one I use, and it is really really good, great price as well. 500watts is also more then enough for you! If you have a P4, it is P4 compliant as well. Here ya go!

WHY??? Antec is also good, but just because it is the most expensive doesn't mean a thing. How much do you want to spend?? I mean, you could get a whole new tower for some of the prices of the Antec and Thermaltake PSUs out there!

Their website may look like a joke, but they are the best PSU and the most expensive too.

I would suggest an antec, enermax, or maybe an OCZ. And don't get anything higher than 500 watts. I gaurantee you won't need the extra watts.

Default research

How about a ANTEC Neo power 480 watt power supply.
Its 139 euro which is expensive but its suppose to be good.

Would you recomend it.

Thanks.

Someone in this forum is also planning on buying that exact same PSU.

General guide I go buy when getting a PCU is:
MiniTower=350w, MidTower=380w, FullTower=450w and ServerTower=550w. (minimum).

So I would say go for the Antec PCU if that's what you want. It will power your system fine.
