    That PSU is garbage and you would be risking bricking the system by just using it. Never skimp on the PSU a bad PSU can damage anything attached to it. Here'a a couple better options

  2. Look at a corsair 430,antec 450,or one of the evga b series minimum mate.
    Cheap PSU's are the bane of any system
