any recommendations about the cheapest power supply thet has the power for running couple PNY GTX 460 1G SLI with amd phenom ii x4 955 BE
and nForce 750 chipset motherboard with 4G corsair RAM
if there is a case that containing psu that is enough of running all hardware that will be good
am just looking for that cheapest possible and nothing more than i need "the minimum"
and am not looking for frying my stuff after a week :D 
maybe this will help"

i was thinking about this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
its a case that has 480W psu rady for one gtx 460.. and when i get another gtx 460 for SLI a install another psu just for it and i well be running 2 psu in one case, so much cheaper than buying the $100 although i posted that i need cheapest one and i don't need extra power

That 480W PSU can't power one GTX 460, stay away from Generic PSU's.

Generic PSU-shaped objects should NEVER be attached to computer components if there is any chance they will also be plugged in to an A/C power source.
Based on some assumptions about number of drives and fans, the PSU calculator at http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine suggests that 553W would be sufficient. That doesn't include overclocking, or a cushion for lower stress and greater efficiency, so I think 650W is a lot more comfortable.
A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency. Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Enermax/LEPA are among the better brands.

See the little voltage switch? That Rosewill is, at best, an obsolete, inefficient design; at best.
There's a 15% off deal on the Corsair "Builder" series right now. Antec Earthwatts are usually also inexpensive.

Edit: This one has free shipping: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Power Supplies are Unique in that when they fail they have the distinct ability to fry everything else in the process. Direct ability to pump energy to the graphics card, the motherboard, the processor; When it fails luck determines what survives. Don't go cheap with good hardware.

Something in the 600-Watt range should be enough

No, a voltage switch is bad; it means the PSU uses an obsolete design. A full range active PFC PSU does not need a voltage switch; it is able to operate on any voltage, typically 100-240 VAC.

phenom ii x3 720 and xfx mda72p7509 and 500G hard dick and all the stuff perfectly ?

I dont think the Antec can help you run that part of your computer but the SLI GTX 460 and phenom, sure can do.
It's a quality unit of quality build that will do its rated voltage and sustain it efficiently and with stability.

Good choice!
