Power Supply recommendation help

Hi, I'm building a computer for my mom...the usual web surfing, light photo editing stuff. Im giving her a Z77 motherboard I have laying around and going to pair it with an i2500K. I know its overkill but I have all the components except for the cpu and power supply.

Would this Antec 400 power this system ok? Will be using the onboard video on motherboard.

Its on sale for $29.99 and antec is a good name. Reviews are ok but is the 400W sufficient? Thanks

Get the i5-3570k, The Z77 should support Ivy Bridge. But that's up to you. »www.newegg.com/Product/Productco···6-504-TS

If you not going to add anything else to it. That PSU is fine. But in the future. If you were to add a video card in. Remember the PSU only have ONE 6pin pci-express.

This one is so-so also:

you do lose 1 sata, and 1 peripheral. In return you get ONE 6+2Pin PCI-E and is a 80 PLUS Bronze Certified efficiency.

You also have to do the rebate card: »images10.newegg.com/uploadfilesf···cx61.pdf
