An XFX Core Edition 550W would do. Same wattage, much higher quality.

Not surprised that PSU died, it was awful. This one will be far better -

Seasonic S12-II 520w 80+ Bronze Certified PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... @ $64.99 ($20 discount)

This is a far better PSU than that abysmal CM unit. This one will last you years.

may i ask you why you picked 520w not 620w???

i realized that the price for both products are the same now.

If the price is the same then get the 620W model.

The XFX PSU I linked is based on Seasonic S12II as well, but much cheaper.

the price difference is about $10 higher than newegg.

the one with $40 's rebate due is the 30th/// which i do not think i can get its item within one day + cant send the rebate form at the same time...
