Default Need Help With a Power Supply

I just bought a new GeForce 7800 GT and now I need to upgrade my power supply. The computer store in town only has one http://www.hecgroupusa.com/FLEX1.php?id=54
but I don't know how good it is. I also found this one
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...Tab=0&NoMapp=0

Could anyone tell me if these are good, or if they aren't suggest a better one.

no, see, I was trying to steer you away from the brand... Antec, Fortron, OCZ, and even Sparkle offer great quality power supplies.

Have you ever used sparkle? Probably not... They make great PSU's in case you didn't know mr. "PSU God." Read some reveiws or something. I know I don't need to because I've had great experiences with them.

Reviews are usally false especially from site your buying it from.

and Don't Get nasty, I was asking a question.

Sparkle Power supplies Are not widly reccomended. Thats why I was asking, and In fact Ive never seen a good review of one or any statement saying that they are "good". But I guess we all have our good and bad experiences with products.

Is there a specific one you have in mind, I Could show You A better one for less or the same.
