My trusty Generic psu is over 8 years old but i always worry. So i have 2 choices in the 60-65 range
Lol ive ran a hd 4850 gts 250 ect.. on this wonder no pci-e and 18 amp on 12 rail
Newegg is the site

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-151-...

60 no rebate and the seasonic name

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-341-...

65 with 25 rebate i may or may not get

modular would be nice but is the real name worth it?
Thermaltake armor original (no side fan) is my case

thoughts ideas? Theres no cable management to be had so im not to worried but i do want it as clean as possible. (Both dont have extra long cables)

BTW (a2 240 regor, gts250, 3 hdds, 4 fans, 4 gigs of ram) so im sure these will be more than enough power correct me if im wrong

Really nice 15% off w/ promo code on the Seasonic. And the 5 yr warranty.
Even though they're a 520W and 600W models they're only 2Amps apart on the important +12v rail.

Seasonic gets my vote.
And old school cable management is still respectable too.

I actually ordered the S12II-520 from Newegg. The buggers got my order wrong and sent me the M12II-520....I didn't complain! The OCZ unit is actually a great price/performance buy. It's not as good as the Seasonic unit, but it's good. Either of these are actually overkill for your rig. For $45 you can get the Antec Earthwatts 380W; more than sufficient for your rig. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I definitely understand if you want to go overboard in anticipation of upgrading the rest of your rig.

Well my video card is weak at best and later on if i get something that really eats some power ill be set. Theres a 209 gtx 480 at newegg that looks great but the idea was to take care of it now since i dont get new parts alot. Ive seen things like the cx430 cheap great but the reviews are poor and for a little more up front i can get something worth buying. One thing I really wonder is cables are they gonna be long enough anyone have any experience with an armor full tower?
