im not looking to spend over 80-100 dollars usd.
my specs are gtx 660 ti 2gb
i7 870 @2.93 ghz
8 gigs ddr3 1333 mhz ram
and im getting an azza tech toledo 301 case and will use all the fans inside.
plus probably some leds.
i was thinking about a 700 watt psu would that be sufficient?
and does anyone have suggestions for a good psu? i've never bought one before.
thanks in advanced guys!

There is no such thing as best, but there are good quality ones to thin out the herd on less of a chance of getting a dud and one that will last you for years to come. You can even go lower than 700W unless you plan on picking up a second GPU in the future (don't know if your motherboard supports it) which in that case you would have to have a higher budget to accommodate a higher wattage PSU of quality.

Here are a few options.

PCP&C 600W

Seasonic 620W

I generally only recommend PSU manufactured by Seasonic. Fortunately all the PSU recommended by Orlean are manufactured by Seasonic.

Nothing against the PCP&C 600w PSU, I just find the white color rather odd. I prefer black. Yes, yes... I am a racist when it comes to the color of my PSU... Sue me...

Between the Seasonic and the Corsair, I would choose the Corsair for the lower price (after rebate) and the slightly higher wattage. Oh yeah, it has free shipping too.

Corsair TX 650 + Coolermaster Storm Enforcer which is a better case.

why is the storm enforcer better? i thought the toledo 301 was a good case.

A high quality 450w would work for those specs, 650w if you plan on adding a second 660Ti

Front USB 3 ports and built better too. Azza looks like a cheap no name knockoff.
