What Power Supply?

I needed a Power Supply ASAP so I bought one locally - an Antec 850 watt for $200.00 bucks. I want to buy one online and return this one as it's way overpriced. Anyone have any recommendations that is modular and will run my gear better than the one I listed below? Might as well save some money...

Here is the one I have.

My gear is:
Asus P5Q Pro
4GB Mushkin Memory
2x Western Digital Raptors
