I'm ordering a new video card (gtx660 TI) and I am also going to have to upgrade from my current 400 watt power supply. I have found four at reasonable prices and (I'm assuming based on brands) reasonable quality, now I just need to know which one the community would recommend.

The card it would power.

the power supplies:

the other parts they would be powering are:
amd fx-6120
2 x 7200 RPM 1tb hdd's
10 gb ram
1 x blueray burner
3 case fans

any other suggestions would be most welcome, although i am limited of a budget of $70.

Your second choice above, the OCZ, is the best. Avoid the last two.

Of those PSU the OCZ is the best, good quality, modular and it's not that expensive. Don't cheap out in the Power Supply, it's very important and gives stability to your system.

You could get a Corsair:

Diablotek and Raidmax make bad quality Power Supplys, don't buy from them.

Hi - both zdbc & jray are correct about the 2 bad brands.

Of the links posted, I think the 1st one by jray is the psu value,
it's the tx v2 version which is mfg by Seasonic.

I think the OCZ is the one I'm going with, while the corsair is rather nice, i'm afraid cable management would be rather hard considering my case is just that of a standard HP computer (aka small) and it also is not in budget. thank you though.
