Hi, I know i'm new, but,
Why is the Supernova incompatible? What is the issue?
I can suggest many for that build, even a 50$ cheap one.
I can see no reason why it will not work, unless it is faulty, you will need to test it.

Welcome to BC Mirstro!
As XF2000 posted above, why is the Supernova incompatible? There shouldn't be any issue with it not working.
You should be able to get any standard PSU and have it work for your build. The one thing I would suggest is getting something along the lines of 700 to 750 watts. Even though you may only need 500 having more is always good. It allows for future upgrading, and also helps in the longevity of the PSU.

As said above in a couple of replies, your power supply shouldn't be incompatible if it's the same "socket". The only other thing I would recommend is take into consideration the brand, model, "ratings (Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platnium etc.)" and the overall wattage as well - I've got a EVGA Supernova P2 1000 watt power supply with the below build (a bit similar to yours):
CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K
Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula IV
RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance (1600 MHz)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H110i GT
Graphics Card: Asus Strix 980Ti OCO3
SSD: Samsung 840 Evo Pro 512GB
Never had a problem with it but I wouldn't go for anything with less wattage that's not platinum "rated" with a good build. I'd recommend Corsair's AXi range for performance, or the EVGA Supernova P2 for budget and performance.
To summarize the power supply you listed above shouldn't have a problem with your build but I would go for a slightly better rated one with more wattage to ensuer there is enough power going to all components and performing as it should be.
Let me know if you need any help with this.

You can just use something like this to get a basic idea of what you need, its not bang on but it still gives you a good idea of what to get,as well its never a bad idea to get a little more then you need in case you need it down the road and or to make the psu last longer.
