My power supply died and now since I need to upgrade that I figured might as well look into the future upgrades. I currently have :

Windows 7 64 bit
Gigabyte Mobo GA-880GM-D2H
AMD Black Phenom II x6 3.2
4 GB Ram DDR3
graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 1GB
duel harddrives one 512 and other 1TB
Samsung Monitor 1900x1200 resolution

gonna change out the GPU eventually to the Galaxy gtx 560 ti http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite...

Im not clear on the rails and amps and such just confusing to me. Would this PSU work for this card with any head room? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I dont care for the clear case and fan colors just something that seemed affordable. or other suggestions would be great.

I would stay away from both of those brands. Neither has a good reputation. What you need is a good and inexpensive 500W PSU. Something like this:
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

$50 AR

Coolermaster GX550 cheap, 80 Bronze certified works a charm.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT a crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important.

XFX Core Edition PRO550W (P1-550S-XXB9) $69.99 ($54.99 after mail-in rebate card)
• +12 Volt continuous current rating of 44 Amps
• one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors
