Hey guys, can you recommend some quality PSU for the GTX 550 Ti?

I'd also like to hear opinions on whether or not this card will run well with my computer.

Dell Studio 540 Mini-Tower
Windows Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-bit)
Memory (RAM) 4096 MB (2 sticks of 2 GB DDR2)
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz
Motherboard: Dell Inc. Model: 0M017G
2 monitors at 1920 x 1080

Also, I realize as long as minimum of 24 AMP is on the 12 V for the GTX, whatever PSU I get should suffice but I'm still confused as to which would be the best for my system as I might re-assemble/build my computer with a new case and a new motherboard that supports SLI in the future with another GTX 550 Ti and would like to take this into consideration.

Will I need to spend over 100$ for a PSU for my current computer that will support my future one?

It has +12V1@24A, +12V2@24A So actually from my knowledge it should give you more then 24 a => 48A but in reality it would be less.
