Can someone recommend a power supply for this card if you've purchased it before.

Specs for it. I know it needs one 6 pin and at least 400 watts but do you know anything that will do the job for a cheap price.

Here is what I've found so far. Any thoughts on it.

I like it. It's just a matter of having to wait for my next paycheck, which sucks because I don't get it till next Monday.

What do you think of the one I picked out?

Don't get it. The important difference between that one and the NEO is that the NEO is rated 80+, which means it runs more efficeint, creates less heat, and most importantly it'll last longer.

Yes it will be worth the wait, if you want to go for a better PSU then that you look for 80+ a medal (bronze, silver, gold platnium) which will run more efficently and last longer. If you want to spend some more money this one would be worth it for the bronze rating.

The VP can't be 80+ certified because it lacks PFC, not something that has an affect on Average Joe the PC user
It does make 80+ efficiency levels

There's not enough of a difference in efficiency between the Bronze rated XFX and the non rated Antec to mean anything in regards to longevity
