Need help Buying A PSU

Hello guys,

Just recently, my current PSU fan stopped working. I'm in the market looking for a new PSU because I can't keep going without the fan working. I'm no expert so I need help buying a replacement PSU.

My Computer consist of the following:

Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q6600
• 2.40 GHz, 2x4MB L2 Cache, 1066 MHz Front Side Bus

GeForce GTS 250
•1GB 256-bit GDDR3

3072MB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM memory
• (2x1024MB 2x512MB)

HDD 640 GB (2 x 320 GB)
•7200 rpm

Not sure if it matters but I also have 2 PCI Case Coolers that use one 4 pin connector each.
If any more information is needed regarding my PC, let me know.
Thanks in advance! :)

    Price Range
    Single or Multi Rails
    Modular/Non-modular
    Cable length (if you have a full tower case)

    Wattage needed? Enough to run all my specs, as I listed in the first post

    Price Range? $60-80?

    Single or Multi-Rails? I think I'll only need 1 for my graphics card.

    Modular/Non Modular? I prefer modular. I have a medium-small case and I don't want all the unused cables laying around. But if theres a nice deal for a non modular, I'll take it.

    Cable length? I have a stock HP case. ^
