    really nice rig, especially for free, and it will overclock well if you try. that PSU is a bit lightweight for the specs though...

    your PC will already come w/ a PSU, it is just a better idea to get one with a little more wattage as your config requires a good amount of power. Here is an easy way to estimate the power your sysem will use. Also it is always better to get a PSU with more wattage than you need for 2 main reasons. One, it will not hold back any upgrading you might do and two PSU's can sometimes "weaken" over time.

    A good power supply can cost anywhere from 70 to $300+. But for your rig I'd look at one that was $130 give or take.
