Any PSU you buy will have enough SATA connectors, but possibly only one PCIe connector, in some cases (I don't know how many a 8800 Ultra needs, though).

As far as wattage goes, 500W is what is recommended for the 8800 Ultra, from what I can find.

Just try to find a 500-550W PSU with two PCIe connectors to be safe.

Will this be enough for everything?

Yes, although I would like to know which PSU it is, just to make sure that the quality is at least decent.

It's a brand new thermaltake w0100 ru 500 watts. I searched for it on new egg amid it has 4 out of 5 eggs although it must be an older model because its discontinued but for 30 bucks new it seems like a good deal?

Eh, Thermaltake PSU's are pretty bad, actually (I would never recommend one), but for that system, I think you'll be ok, if you already have it.

I just wouldn't trust it for my own system.

Well, "low budget" and "reliable" rarely ever go together in the same sentence, lol, but this is a great unit that I have no problems with recommending: Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply $59.99 and (and $10 off with a Promo code).
