No, you do not want any of the low-tier Thermaltake units. The only ones of theirs worth buying are some of the various Toughpowers at the high-end of their portfolio.

A quality 550W would be just fine; these types of calculators are generally garbage.

Under $40 is an unrealistic budget, unless you catch a (modern) Corsair CX at just the right time.

This, however, is a tremendous price for a tremendous PSU.
