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

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.

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

Then the 600W/700W will do fine.
