Every time someone asks this I always want to say "Get a bloody solid, reliable unit!". Reason being is that the people who build a cheap rig generally don't have any money to replace things if their PSU goes postal. Better to lose a bit of performance and have a higher likelihood of nothing being damaged instead of betting your entire machine on some cheap power supply. That being said, the Earthwatts units are fine, but their price just spiked up absurdly high. The Corsair CS400w is at a more reasonable price right now, or if you're absolutely certain that power supply will never be used for much else, the Seasonic SS300ET is a high-quality yet inexpensive unit.

A PSU for a budget build but don't know the budget yet. There are some nice deals with MIR. Without MIR, this $19 Antec 350w should be fine for e6300 and ati x1600 pro.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954 - FSP 450w

I've had that power supply for 2 or 3 years now, and it hasn't given me a single problem.
