Default Good PSU's

I'm looking to build my first computer in the next couple weeks, and I've had no trouble picking the parts I want and need, except for the PSU. It seems every review I read says ONLY good things, or ONLY bad things. The wide price range makes it that much more confusing. I'm looking for suggestions for a reasonably priced PSU with 500+ watts. I would like to find a nice looking one with LED lights, or something that will help my PC's window look nice .

Anyway here is some important specs:
AMD 64 4000+
ASUS SLI-Premium mobo
2gb XMS RAM
eVGA 7800 GT
19inch LCD moniter
250gb HD
DVD-r, CD-r optical drive

Well if you want a really nice psu with LEDs check out the OCZ powerstream That is a very nice psu with 520W. You should also check the Antec True power series.

I am a fan of OCZ PSUs. For an SLI setup I would go with at least 500W, like this OCZ ModStream 520W

OCZ Powerstream is a very good one for you.

However I recomend you reconsider your motherboard and look at the DFI Lanparty SLI-DR / Ultra-D
