400w minimum and get one with the "p4" plug so if you upgrade mobos later it will work

P4 plug is not called that. It is called ATX12V. Also if you can't find the power supply that you want with ATX12V then you can buy an adapter that converts your 4 pin molex connector to a 4 pin ATX12V connector. Both INTEL and AMD recommends the user to get a power supply with an in-take fan and out-take fan.

Thumbs up power supply ????

Just a good name 350watt or higher would probably do the trik just make sure it has at least 2 fans built into it and depending on mobo an atx should work fine.........just ask local vendor they should be willing to help, and if not then buy elsewhere....
