What Power Supply Should I Buy?

Ok so I'm building a computer for my school, basically just for things like browsing the web, using Microsoft Office, and doing research and what not. I've got basically everything except the power supply. Here's what I've got
1. Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H Motherboard

2. AMD Athlon II X2 255 Regor 3.1GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor

3. Western Digital 500 GB SATA OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD5000AADS (Caviar Green)
4. CORSAIR XMS3 DHX 4GB ( 2 X 2GB ) PC3-10666 1333MHz 240-pin DDR3 CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit
5.
NZXT Alpha Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Would all these put together work ok? What power supply should I buy for this?

To take from my previous post in your other thread:

I would suggest this: Newegg.com - Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W ATX12V V2.2 Intel Core i7 Compliant Dual 80mm Fans Full Cable Sleevings Power Supply. If you're just going to use the onboard video with the onboard audio, a hard drive and DVD Drive, then this should suffice. It runs decently, I've installed it on many PCs and it definitely lasts quite a good while. Still haven't had one go out on me in over 3 years, which is not bad.

If you plan to upgrade to higher end components some time, you might look into getting a higher end power supply such as: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182070

This is a cool little tool and you can load up some mods to see if your purchase will hold up over time !
I just moved from a 600w to 1050 for making the too little mistake !
