Looking for a good PSU Fit

So I will lay out the machine specs and see what you guys think I need for a good PSU

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 399MHz (6-6-6-18)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. CM5570 (LGA775)
1024MB GeForce GTX 460 (nVidia)
750GB Seagate - Main
1TB Western Digital - Excess

Will be adding a 60-120 GB SSD drive soon

Currently PS is a Delta model: GPS-300AB

Reasoning for getting a new one its not enough drops off at random and am just frustrated I am not able to run up to my potential, was hoping to keep the PSU under 100 if there is anything else that stands out that should / could be upgraded let me know

Thanks in advance

  1. I would personally go for better than the builder series. My favorite is the enthusiast series. This one in particular, either modular or non-modular:
    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

    or modular:
    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650M 650W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular High Performance Power Supply
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139031
  2. Yup, Enthusiast series is better and not much more expensive. More stable, has some more features (better capacitors, regulators,...) just no reason to go for less.

    You can keep the psu well under $100
    Your system is kinda dated and doesn't require a boatload of power, basically any good quality psu with dual 6 pin connectors could handle it.
    Here's a couple of 500w units

    In that case you'll need a 650W+ psu with 4 x pci-e pins.
    XFX is a good fit.
    XFX Core Edition PRO650W
