PSU Fried - Need help choosing a new one

My current PSU died - poof smoke. I'm lucky it didn't take my system with it. It was some generic thing that I bought years ago, back before I really knew what the heck I was doing. Anyway, I need a new one and I am not sure about quality and whatnot. I have looked at mpilchfamily's articles, but I don't really want to spend a lot of money on such an old system, but I do want it to function for another year or so at least, as my 3 younger sisters play the sims 2 and some older games on it. I was hoping that mpilchfamily or other knowledgeable PSU forum members could point me in the right direction for a mid range PSU that would sufficiently power this machine without breaking the bank. I am looking for under $60 if that is feasable. Thanks in advance!

Here are the specs:

P4 Northwood 3.0GHZ
1GB DDR333 ram - 2x256 1x512
80GB HDD
ATI 9700

This is the psu 90% of us will recommend. Good quality, enough power, low price.

I agree although that's more power than you need at that price you can't beat it.

I'd save an extra $15 and get this this one. More than enough for your rig.
