Hello! This PSU is on sale on NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($70, from $100)

Two questions about it. :) 
1. Is there a less expensive PSU that outputs at least 600W? It should be reliable and last a while.
2. Will this PSU fit in my case? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=11-352-...

This is a budget build, so that's why I'm interested in a lower-priced PSU. The PSU I chose originally won't keep up my graphics card - it only outputs 450W. Thanks in advance!

Don't just look at the wattage the PSU mfg claim, check the amps on the 12v rail(s). Antec is a quality PSU mfg so that PSU is more than sufficient for any single GPU computer.

Hi Ghost - Don't know the OEM for that NeoEco unit, but it has been recommended frequently, and Antec has a good rep
in PSU's. It should fit your case which is 6.9"wide and the PSU is 5.9"wide.

What are the specs of your pc? That would make it easier to gauge your real needs. I always go with Seasonic, they are the best psu manufacturer. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That one is ten bucks more but well worth it. A psu is not something you should skimp on as far as quality goes.

Review for the Neo Eco 620C:
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cases/display/psu-600w...

This is cheaper before the rebates/promo codes on the Neo Eco 620C, but more expensive after.
NZXT Hale82 650W ($60 @ Newegg)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-power-supply-hale8265...
Based on the Seasonic M12II Bronze 650W (SS-650AM). It is better because it is modular, more efficient and has independent voltage regulation. However it will be noisier, due to the idle speed of it's fan being 1000RPM vs ~500RPM on the Neo Eco/M12II/S12II Bronze units.

The Fractal Design Core 1000 will accept ATX PSUs up to 180mm deep.
