Default < $100 PSU suggestions?

I actually used the search feature but i couldn't find the answer i wanted.

I'm looking for a nice PSU for under $100. I'm going to be running a 3700+, X1800XT, and an ABIT mobo which has the 24 pin connector. I might eventually OC but if i do it won't be much. I hate to be annoying but any help would be welcomed.

Look at Antec and Thermaltake. Do not buy anything less than 400watts.

waddya know...? Ste suggested an Antec... Thermaltake is a solid brand. Actually, if you're wanting to save a lot of money, this is the one I just ordered.

40 bucks-
Cooler Master eXtreme Power 430W

EDIT: This PSU is only 34 bucks because of free shipping!
