Need help completeing this build... just a PSU

Okay, so I've been building my system online from a website. It's primary purpose will be for heavy multimedia editing (photo, 3d, video) secondary purpose is gaming.

I am having trouble selecting the right PSU at an affordable price. I've already gone approximately £80 over my £750 budget, so this makes choosing a decent PSU harder. I need one with at least 2 SATA connectors for my two WD Caviar SE16's.

Just so that you know, my build goes like this:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) E6400
RAM: Corsair Value S. PC5300 DDR2 2048MB Kit
Graphics Card: XFX GeForce 7900GS 525M 256MB GDDR3
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-945P-S3
HDD1: Western Digital Caviar SE16 320GB SATA2 16MB 7200RPM
HDD2: Western Digital Caviar SE16 320GB SATA2 16MB 7200RPM
Monitor: LG 20" LCD L204WT
Case: APLUS Case 188A
PSU (at the moment): Fortron Source Blue Storm II 400W

I am having trouble selecting a decent PSU. I want one that'll work, and one with enough power to support my system. I heard something about how many volts on however many rails... kinda confusing.

I need help in selecting a decent PSU... here's the thing, you're limited to the PSU's in this list.

Please note: I do NOT live in the states, so posting links to NewEgg (or any other US-based site) won't help me.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can point me in the right direction and then I can finally buy this thing :P

  1. I would get this one:

    Tagan Easycon 480W, Modular Cables, 120m Fan, 4xSATA, ATX/EPS, SLI, 20/24pin

    from what i hear tagan is really good.
  2. http://www.bfgtech.com/7900GS_256_PCIX.html

    Quote:
    A 350W PCI Express compliant system power supply (with 12V current rating of 22A or more)


    This psu exceeds the requirements & is not expensive. The one you chose doesn't have enough amps.

  3. The best one is the OCZ 850W, but it is 99 more, which might be too much.

    Then the 600W/700W will do fine.
