Do not compromise on the PSU DamonC if you can get a decent PSU especially if it's 80PLUS Certified than you'll be saving your system from many troubles. According to your System Specs you've mentioned it looks like you can find Cooler Master PSU's in your country so i would suggest you to buy one of them.

oh another question for you guys, my motherboard has an 8 pin connection for the processor power and the PSU am gonna get will most likely hav a 4 pin, now when i just got the mobo four of those pins on it had a cap over them but i removed it cuz my PSU at the time had the 8 pin connector on it, so i dont think its manditory to use all 8 pins........ what do u guys think?
