A friend of mine wants to custom build the following PC, but is clueless as to what kind of PSU to get.

CPU: Phenom 9600 Quad-Core(2.3 GHz)
GPU: GeForce 9800 GT
RAM: 2x 2GBs DDR2(1000 MHz)
HDD: A single SATA drive

I don't know how power hungry the rest of the components are, but here they are, anyway:

USB: 4 ports can be used at any given time
Fan: I THINK he's getting a 120 mm one, but no clue on which one. Sorry. >_<
Media Drives: 1 DVD-RW drive, 1 floppy drive(don't ask).


What would be a recommended PSU? Also, due to the parts available over here, chances are we won't be able to get any of the PSU brands you might mention, so I'd rather have guidelines for W usage and amperage for the rails, if possible. Maybe I'm asking too much. Sorry for that. >_>

I'll have to do some research into that one, since I'm not the one actually getting the PC, but...
I'll be back with a list of the most common brands over here and overall prices. Budget is...kinda hard to measure at the moment. Most likely around the $100(you'd have to consider that things here tend to cost MUCH more than over at first world countries, though). I'll edit this or make another post once I have more info.


Here we go:

Cooler Master, Saikano and Thermaltake(in that order) seem to be the most available ones overall.
These are some I got the info for:

Saikano:
$70, 500w, 12v: 25a, 5v: 25a, 3.3v: 15a, 80/120 mm fan(two different models)
No model name or number.

Cooler Master:
$67, 460w, 80 mm fan. Can't find amperage per rail for this one. Will keep looking.
"eXtreme Power Plus, RS-460-PMSR-A3"


Thermaltake:
$65, 430w, 80 mm fan. Damned shops having no real info on their products(heck, their CPUs and GPUs have no info on their power usage or actual speed and processing power. Third world countries suck, most of the time).


Regardless of the lack of info on the later two, they shouldn't be much different from that of the Saikano brand. Out of those I have only heard of Thermaltake, so I don't know how reliable Cooler Master and Saikano are.

As I said, I'm not sure I can get hold of a Corsair-branded PSU over here.

(By the way, Asus power consumption test claims that said PC would use around 600w. Is that somewhat accurate, at the very least?)
