    CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com

    Also, I was looking at mother boards too while you were coming up with that build. Do you prefer the mother board you chose over this one?
    Newegg.com - ASUS A55BM-E FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    If you can afford that PSU, yes I would suggest getting it. The motherboard I added is a bit more advanced for only a few dollars more so I would get mine if I were you. Good luck with your new PC build, you wont be disappointed.

    Does the PSU I showed you have enough ports? It's got 4 ports.

    And, thanks again.

    Good thing you mentioned that, they gave you all the cables for the ports and you wont need the PCI cables unless you add a GPU on to your build, so you'll actually have 1 or 2 extras. However I did notice that the 8 Pin connected to the PSU cannot be split into double 4 pin connectors and the motherboard takes a 4 pin You might have to get the regular CX430 but that case should allow you to stuff all the unused cables behind the motherboard plate.

    And no problem, I like helping people.
