IMO just get this EA-430D, powers your system fine, and $50 flat.

But for something better, the XFX 650W is great @ $88: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Where? On the egg its still $90 for V1 and $100 for V2, both with $15MIRs. Tigerdirect has the V2 for $85 flat: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

The XFX and the Corsair are both excellent with identically long 5 year warranties, but the XFX is modular, which is worth the $8 even if the TX650 was only $80 IMO.

For a max 100$ budget, these are the two PSU's to choose from -

Both are excellent.. However, if we go by your current system needs, a good 400W PSU (as suggested above) will suffice.. Another option that will just work out and cost further less is the Corsair CX 430 -
