I just need a good power supply for this system that is compatible (cables must be compatible and the wattage must be enough) The wattage I would prefer is 500+. Please reccomend a good Power Supply for this system that is below 70 dollars. Also, how do you know if the PSU will be compatible with the DVD drive, Hard Drive and motherboard? Thank you

    1 x 12V(P4)------power cable for cpu

    1 x 12V(8Pin)------power cable for cpu....note---some motherboards use a 4 pin power connector for the cpu and some us a 8 pin power connector....this psu has both so your good there....

    All of the plugs are standardized. You'd have to work hard to have an obscure or uncommon power plug. Also, you'd have to be installing a LOT of hardware to exceed the quantity of each plug that most power supplies come with.

    As for what power supply, it sounds like you have a good idea of computer hardware. Just go through Newegg's advanced search feature relative to the power supplies and then sort the list by price, lowest first. Find the first one that's four or five eggs and see how much it costs.

    If you're really concerned, read the description of each product you're installing. Note its power supply plug. Use Newegg's advanced search to input your required quantities one at a time.
