Hey all,

What PSU would you recommend for an HTPC with an 2600xt card? I want to keep my build under budget so I want a PSU for less then 60$. Any good models worth checking?

List your complete system specs. I use this to power a micro system with Pentium D, 7600GT, 1 GB RAM. The price is great for the quality.

that's overkill for my system, my 2600xt card doesn't need that much power

The FSP I listed is a great unit so far. Been running it all day long in the front office. I replaced a generic 400 wat unit that was just too noisy. The FSP is much more quiet and my system runs very cool and quiet now.

The 380W Seasonic can be found at XPCGear.com for only $60. That perfectly fits your quoted budget, and gives you more power.
