This is probably the most overlooked part when it comes to building any system.

I know from experience that cheap PSU's just cause you problems.

I have just bought a coolermsaster from ebuyer. Cost me £71 , but worth everypenny.

This will sound stupid, but trust me on this one, if your PSU feels light, forget it you will get problems under peak load.

If there is a good weight to it, you will probably be ok

I've had good luck with Antec's product line. I had one go out under warranty, but they replaced the PSU, AND motherboard, CPU and RAM! Can't beat that!
IF you can find on sale, they are that expensive (newegg can be a good source)
