How big should the psu be? I'm hoping I can get it for under $100. Is that possible?

well i have about $500 to spend right now so my first priorties are the psu and video card. The reason i went with the x-fi was someone recommended me it for video games. I was going to go with the cheaper one in the first place. And thanks for the responses!
