Default Need a reliable PSU.

I'm looking for a reliable PSU for @ or around $50.00. Why? Because I just recently received a $50 visa gift card -.- I intend to use this card in hacking off a chunk of change on my build by purchasing the PSU with it. So, if someone could help me find a reliable PSU for at, less than, or around the $50 dollar price range... That would be nice.

This is my build thus far:

Combo - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Case - HEC 6K28BB8F Black 0.8mm SECC Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Vid - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

ODD - LG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache IDE CD/DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

Just need the PSU to top it off. Unsure if it HAS to be 550W, though I'd like it to fit in a MicroATX Mini Tower as listed above. Any and all bonuses (such as rebates, free shipping etc etc...) will be more than satisfactory, if they exist.

Is this Visa gift card only for Amazon? Newegg has good prices.

A 500-550W should be ok for your system.

I'd go with the 600W version instead. 49.99 and free shipping from NewEgg.

the gift card is good anywhere. It's like a debit card I guess.
