Hello.

Thanks for the help on my earlier post, but I have been rethinking....

OCZ OCZ500MXSP ModXStream Pro 500 Watt Power Supply

is what I started with, but I am seeing some not so good reviews on it.

I am looking at maybe:
Diablotek 650-Watt ATX Power Supply PHD650

The thing is that I have only little knowledge on PSUs, it all seems a mystery with amps, volts, rails.....

So my system is:

ASUS LGA 1366 - Intel X58 - True USB 3.0 & SATA 6Gb/s - ATX Motherboard P6X58D-E -

Intel Core i7 Processor i7-930 2.80GHz 8 MB LGA1366 CPU, Retail BX80601930 -

Sapphire Radeon HD5770 1 GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card

Corsair 6 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3 Core i7 Triple Channel Memory Kit CMX6GX3M3A1600C9 -

Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98 - Retail (Black) -

Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 Inch Internal Hard Drive ST31000528AS-Bare Drive

I am not planning on crossfire and will be doing a bit of 'lite' OC

So at <$60....any recommendations?

dont get the diablo, horrible POS unit.

Id get a corsair VX450. it will be enough for the system (it can actually supply close to 600w, they are downrated to get better efficiency scores).

A PSU which provides 450W and presents one 6-pin PCIe connector is recommended.
Here you have some budget but quality PSUs for <60$:

hello kartoga;
It might surprise you that the OCZ has a bit more of the important +12V power than the Diablotek 650.
If you look at the data labels (Diablotek first, then OCZ) you see that Diablotek claims 35Amps +12V and the OCZ 36Amps (432watts divided by 12volts = 36Amps).

And you want to see at least one good review from one of the better independent review sites: OCZ ModXStream Pro 500 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets.

The PSU I like best of all those recommended so far is the Antec NEO ECO 620C 620W suggested by Henry Chinaski.
With +12V @ 48Amps it's a powerhouse at a relative bargain (and no shipping charge).
