Default Please recommend me a PSU!!!

My power keeps cutting out when I connect both HDDs so I need to upgrade from my Atrix 520W that came with the case.

AMD X2 3700+
Asus M2N32-SLI Delux
2x1GB Corsair DDRII RAM
Geeforce 7600GT
Sounblaster Audigy
DVDRW Drive
Floppy Drive
Maxtor Diamondmax 150GB S-ATA
Western Digital 250GB S-ATA

Fans: Zalman CPU Fan, 12" case, 9"exhaust

Can you please recommend me a good PSU fort his setup? I have no idea how powerful my power supply needs to be!

Thanks

Budget? You're going to need at least $100.

Any of these HIPER's should be great. The pink one is the best price...I guess we both know why...

Definately don't need 100 dollars to spend..

I've recommended this PSU so many times.. 80 amps on the 12v rail makes it easilly the most powerful PSU for 100 dollars, it's good quallity... modular... for a comparison, the HIPER suggested up there has 38 amps on the 12v rail.. this PSU easilly has 800w on the 12v rail alone.

Just get this PSU

anything's better than that pink **** talldude posted^

I'd recommend something out of these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148025
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817152022

I suppose the best advice I can give is to only go with well known name brands, like OCZ, Antec, Thermaltake, Apevia, Fortron, etc...

and if you find one you like, search around for some reviews on it before buying
