So i need a new PSU my current one = poo...

So i need a psu strong enough to power a
Phenom 8750 OCd to 3.12 Ghz
5 Case Fans
1 CD DVD Burner Sata.
1 500 GB HDD
3GBS ddr2 667mhz Ram
1 GTX 260 core 216 OC maxcore 55 Edition
Asus M2n68 AM Se2 motherboard



Im on a budget and wouldn't really want to spend near 100$ but if i REALLY REALLY have to i will.


I just need enought power for those htings and maybe something to spare,
im not familiar with PSU brans but am with mostly anything else with a PC.

But any suggestions on best quality brands for a good price would be welcomed.

Reasons followed for psu upgrade :
GTX 260 underclocking giving 24 FPS in games like Team Fortress 2, CSS, Arma 2, And Half Life.
Product was replaced but still persists.
I doubt its a bottleneck problem, and if it is then it would have to be dealt with.

And thanks,

David.

Corsair, PC P&C, Seasonic, Antec Eathwatts come to mind. Look for something with a minimum of 30 amps on the 12 volt rail.

+1 for a Corsair, PCP&C, Seasonic or Antec Earthwatts 500w+ PSU.
Looking at current prices on Newegg, the Corsair 550VX for $56.19 after MIR is your best option.

+1 for the Corsair 550...
Would best suit your setup...
Actually that 550 can even power an i7 with GTX 285...
So you can also reuse it in your future builds...

I most often buy Antec, but I've gotten a couple of Seasonics in the last year or so. I'd buy any of those.
