Default 20 pin PSU

I need a good, least expensive, 20 pin PSU. Its gonna power a AMD athlon 2800+, 512 ram, 2 cd drives, 80g H.D. and the basics. Anyone have one in mind thats reliable for a good price? Sooo many on N.E and Im not a PSU person : ) No Sata btw.

I was looking at this..any good?

Dont seem like to many good companies make 20 pin anymore.

I have a 300W PSU that powered the system in my sig for a while until i upgraded. It did it's job well and i can sell it to you for about $25 if you'd like. Just thought i'd throw it out there...

Thanks for the offer, but my buddy brought this over for me to fix and it has a 300w psu in it that fried its self and the mobo. Gonna try for something with a bit more power. That link in my first post seems to be a pretty good psu for what this system is I think. Seems to have some good reviews except for some complain about the noise, but Im not to worried about it. They probally didnt have it supported well. It says it has 20A on the 12v rail. Guess Ill go with this and see how it works out. Not gonna buy it till tommorow afternoon, so If anyone thinks this PSU is a bad idea feel free to shout : )

Okay that's cool, just throwing it out there, beedabuy has a 20 pin PSU that he might want to sell to you, and if you don't want it, i'm sure he can give you advice.
