Well the thing is, that video card requires a good solid PSU of at least 400-450w. You can get a value PSU, but I'd reccomend sticking with a more solid brand PSU that won't take half your computer with it when it fails, such as Antec, OCZ or PC Power and Cooling.

I'm not looking for a cheap brand, just something that can get the job done without costing all my money.

Forton's are super reliable and on the reasonable side.

Yeah, they are. The 450W Fortron PSU is a great bang/buck PSU. Power goes a lot further than a lot of people on here seem to think. 350W, if correctly allocated, will go a long way.
