VoidXero, welcome to the forum.
When requesting help, you should always include the make/model of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them. We have to see the specs for the computer to know which components are supported by the motherboard.
Since the PSU is the backbone of the computer, it is not the place to save money. I like Corsair and OCZ. I normally recommend at least 500W to 600W. This will give you more choices for video cards. The wattage is no problem, since the computer only uses the amount required to run it properly. The additional wattage is there for peak time.

We are missing one critical piece of information. What video card(s) do you plan on using?
Not all power supplies are created equal. The specifications on the cheaper brands can be all over the place. Stick will a well known PSU manufacturer. Leading magazines such as Maximum PC and Computer Power User (March 2012 edition) do evaluate power supplies. I prefer a single +12 rail model PSU as balancing the load on the +12 volt bus does not become an issue.
BTW, what cabinet do you plan on using with the ASUS motherboard?
Totally upgrade or do you really mean to build a PC from scratch?
