Default Power Supply

I want to know what you think the best power supply I can get for around $100 or less and it must have a 20+4pin connector. I am not really sure what would be best for that price so I would appreciate any suggestions on what to get.

You must be joking dude, he said 100$ and he wants a good and reliable PSU not some random brand's psu :x read the reviews of this thing.. some people say it fried up straight after they first booted the comupter..

here's what I ment anyway:

GOOD Power supply, under you'r 100$ Budget, will hold up under high loads and high end systems [even the 7900GTX and x1900XT, and SLI's or Crossfire systems and etc...]

I usually assume that people want something with good value, not high prices.

The NeoHE is junk. Don't buy it. The Truepowers are the best. (like the 550w)

Risking your entire system to save money on a PSU isn't a good value.

$500 system + POS PSU = PSU fries every component in the case = $0

WinTech is average. Not good or bad. I think they make Ultra's PSUs.
