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 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.

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.
