None of those above are very good units. This is the minimum, you should get. A quality PSU is a must.

I personally would recommend spending a few $ more and getting this.

The words 'budget' and PSU' shouldn't be used together. Any power supply that is 'cheap' isn't one you want to base a system on.
I would disagree that you NEVER should buy a budget PSU. There is certainly a time and a place for that.

I am building a system with a 3200g and igpu. It might draw 100w tops, so a budget PSU makes sense.

However, a system with a gpu of this tier is not the type of system that should be using a budget PSU.

if your going to spend 70$+ on a PSU I would buy a used t7*** Dell 1000-1200w Platinum on ebay. Ive gotten a deal on some for 55$ before but they are usually around 70$ shipped. They are ATX form factor.
