I was only suggesting your A4-7300 should work as well as my A4-6320. 
They are almost identical, except the A4-7300 has different onboard video.

That means if you want to spend less, get a celeron. I only use 
Pentiums, which can read/write cpu caches many times faster than any AMD 
APU, and can read/write main memory about 3 times faster than any APU. 
To me, thats as important to the over-all speed of a system, as the 
ability to crunch numbers. The celeron should be similar, but likely has 
smaller caches.

They don't make PSUs like they used to. I replace several cheap power 
supplies a year for bad caps. I replace them with PSUs that cost $50 to 
$65 because I warranty parts and labor, and cheap parts can cost me money.

I've found that any 80+ Certified PSU from a reputable brand, will last 
years.
