I know I don't know computers as well as you, but I think you don't understand I'm on a budget. Go ahead and post 70$ powersupplies, what good would it do me? I know they are good psu's, but I am asking for one in a 50$ pricerange.
The one you guys are recommending is great, but the other is 20 bucks cheaper and I have been given no reason as to why I shoudln't buy it and why I should buy the one you guys recommended.
It's one thing telling me not to get something, it's another telling me why.

you dont need to pay $70 for a PSU.

Some people buy crappy $10 Generic PSU's, and that is bad and can cause components to fail.

Some people buy mid range good branded PSU like 400-450watt Antecs and Thermaltakes which is probably the best option for most. This one is good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023

Some people buy really high end 500 and 600watt PSU's. In some cases this is needed but in most cases it is not but you will get a very good psu anyway.

There are a few good brands out there like Thermaltake and Antec, but make sure it has SATA connecters if you need them and 24 pin ATX plug if you need it.
