Default PSU Headache!!

Could someone PLEASE, PLEASE, tell me how to get a CHEAP PSU that will have:
24Pin ATX Power
either 4+4Pin ATX 12V or 8Pin ATX12V
2X 6Pin PCI-e socket or enough MOLEX connectors to connect.

I currently have a Hiper 530W Type M ATX 2.2V - Hiper PSU ATX 530W Black, Type-M, 120mm
I don't think I will be able to get a new Mobo that requires the 24 + 8 Power connectors.

I am hopping to spend ad little as possible. I have seen this one:
700W Storm LPK19-35 ,120mm Silent Fan, 24pin +4 pin +12V PSU ATX 2.2 -

NOT sure if the 12V Rails will be good enough though with 18Amp / 21Amp.

Was hoping to get a better Mobo that has PCI-e 2.0 and will accept 1066RAM. Currently have a gigabyte GA-P35-S3G. But since I put in the GTX 260 Gcard I can't overclock the CPU from 2.4 to 3.0 which I was able to do Before the Gcard & Ram went in. I know the best bet would be to wait and save some money to get Good Mobo AND a GOOD PSU but really want to get Mobo NOW and can't afford an expensive PSU right Now, maybe get PSU after Xmas? Any help would be very Gratefull right now though.

In UK and probably have 80 for Mobo/PSU.

Please help.

The Corsair 650TX for 71, free shipping.

Corsair 650W TX Series PSU - 120mm Fan, 80+% Efficiency, Single +12V Rail - Ebuyer

It will easily do a 260.

I have the 750TX and the whole Corsair range is excellent.
