Here are my specs:

Core 2 Duo E7200
4 GB DDR2 RAM
(currently)Geforce 512MB 8400GS
500GB 7200 RPM HDD
PSU 300W (stock)

I'm only upgrading to an 8800GTS, but it is a huge upgrade to my 8400GS(which is for workstations).

I'm thinking about purchasing one of these three:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I believe I need a PSU to run the 8800GTS (though I am not really sure). I'm probably going to upgrade the GFX card again but not in the near future, so I need to have enough power with out over-doing it. I'm not sure if the 700W is over-doing it, or ideal or what. I probably will never run two graphics cards at once. Help?

I also see http://www.ncixus.com/products/index.php?sku=26884&vpn=... as an option but it only has two SATA cables, both of which I need (so no extra HDD possibility).

On the other hand I could get something like http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
or http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... .

Or should I go with brands such as OCZ and Corsair? Please help.

Whoops I fixed the links. Why are those so much more expensive than the OCZ models?

Yes, your links work fine now. Product pricing is a Marketing and Sales strategy to stimulate sales. Good for the consumer.

Yes, OCZs are good PSUs, and given a choice I prefer Corsair. Just personal preference.

Go for it!
