Hey Guys.

I'm looking for suggestions on what PSU to upgrade my system with.

I'm running a system with...

Asus P6T SE
i7 920
6 GB Ram

Radeon 5750

on a 400W PSU.

I need to upgrade because the new graphic card i've bought, a Sapphire Radeon HD5850 requires a 500W PSU. I'm not looking for a dead-on 500w PSU, but something with more leeway for any other upgrades that demand more of the PSU.
I have no idea what to get. I've never looked at PSUs before and don't know where to really start my search so any suggestions for PSU i could buy would be very welcome. Hopefully i've provided enough information.

Also, how hard is it to install a PSU for a novice? It doesn't seem like it will be much of a problem but then again, i'm probably not thinking everything through.

No real budget to speak off, i'll spend what i have too.
And i don't have any set place to purchase from. If you link the PSU from a certain site, i will probably buy from them. Is there anything i should know about purchasing from one place over another, other than obvious things like how legit the site is?
