I need a 80+ psu under 100$ that can keep this system running:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.40GHz skt AM3(revision C3)

Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD5850 Toxic 1GB DDR5 256-bit

Hard disk: Samsung 750GB SATA-II 7200 rpm 32MB SpinPoint F3

Memory: 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 XMS3 rev. A dual channel kit

DVD-Writer: LG GH22NS40 Bulk Black

Floppy Disk: Alps 1.44 MB Black

Power Source: ?

Case: Antec Three Hundred ?

(ATI CrossFireâ„¢ Certified Power Supplies) i might consider a Crossfire in the near future if you guys can help me, also i might consider a new case as the antec is a bit outdated in the same price range as the antec300 is now. :bounce:

Above are good reccomendations but they lack the connectors for Crossfire 5850's.
The Antec TP650 would be around $7 more and has 4 pcie connectors.
If you can stand the green, the XFX 650 is also about $7 more, only $82 after rebate and has 4 pcie connectors as well.

^I second the Truepower, or if you want to spend a little more for even greater efficiency, a Seasonic X-650.

Corsair TX650W its also good, but has only 2 PCI 8-pin connectors!

Thank you for the quick replies and i think i will go with the XFX 650 W XXX Edition Power Supply since it provides everything i need and it is manufactured by Seasonic (the green is a + in my opinion).

Also can you guys tell me if the Antec300 is worth the money or if i can get a sweeter deal with the same money (+,- a few $).

for the money, the antec 300 is hard to beat

I'll go with the 650W Corsair since XFX just entered in the Power Supply Market.
