current specs are:
H-I41-uATX (Eton) motherboard (not demanding)
intel pentium E5500 dual-core 2.8ghz
4gb ram
and just got a diamond radeon hd 6770 (minimum psu says 450watt, but I'd like to be safe with 500 at least)

Budget is roughly 60$ I know cheap but I'm also spending 60$ on a new case.

Just having a hard time finding one, and I don't wanna screw myself with a crap brand.

just buy either psu, worth getting good psu with plenty headroom, better to have psu at 20% load than sitting at 80% load. 500w gives you plenty headroom for graphic card upgrade or even whole system upgrade.

No, it's CWT inside, not as good ( IMO ) but a good deal with the promos at Newegg and more than those specs need
