I have bought the following system:

Gigbyte|GA-970A-UD3P AM3+
VGA Sapphire|100366-2L R7 260X Graphics Card
2Gx4|GSkill RAM
AMD|8-Core FX-8350 Processor
2x 2TB Toshiba HDDs SATA
Blu-Ray Burner SATA

and the PSU, Athena Power|AP-P4ATX80FEP8 800W PSU, is bad.

That said, what PSU will work for this system?
I have a budget of $50-70.

Have you contacted Athena Power? That PSU has a 3 year warranty and you may be able to RMA it.

I'm just sending it back to Newegg, and buying a new one.

Made by the BEST=SEASONIC.

44 AMPS on the 12 volt rail is plenty for your card and specs.
