Any quality 400W. For instance, Antec NeoECO 400C.

I prolly should have noted that this person I am building it for likes to leave his computer on for days at a time. I edited the post.

Also 400w seems a tad low to me.

It isn't. You've got a 100W CPU, a 150W GPU, and everything else shouldn't top 75W. This when running heavy stress testing tools, like Furmark and LinX. In gaming he'll be pulling around 250-300W from the PSU, and while idle around 125W.

Most people are conditioned to think like that..400 watts couldn't POSSIBLY be enough for ANYTHING!!

No worries, build quality is much more of a factory than wattage, especially for a rig like this.

Just get yourself a quality unit and you'll make your customer a happy camper..and even happier because he doesn't have to pay out the butt for watts he won't use smile.gif

Edit:

Take your pick from this resource, grab the cheapest recommended one in your wattage range ^.^
