Best PSU under $100 for GTX 480

Hello,

I'm having trouble figuring out the best PSU I can get for my build which includes the infamous GTX 480. I prefer Nvidia drivers and wish to stay within a certain budget/performance ratio, so I will not likely deviate from that GPU. Therefore I would like to know what PSU would be best for managing it.

    you can look at some of the reviews for each power supply Here
  3. A forum I read recommended at least a 750w PSU, but it seemed like pure speculation. Even so would a Corsair TX650W have enough power to spare, or should I spring for the 750W?

    750w is way to much for a single card. even dual gpu cards(590/690/6990) dont use up 750w
  5. If you had to pick one, which one would you pick?

    all of the ones i labeled are good units, it wouldnt matter which one you picked. if you have a brand preference, this is where you can apply it.

    Ok, thanks! I went with the CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2. It was $60 after Mail-in Rebates in case anyone is wondering.
