Bleh, no need to spend so much money.

FSP (Forton) 400W Dual +12v rail - $39.99

Forton's a solid brand, and though that doesn't have very high wattage, the Ampage is still awesome.

Is it the Abit AV8 motherboard?

Oh crap, I thought he said X850XT, lol. Crap, yea, then go with another one, but you don't need to buy like $100 PSUs, there are some freakin good 500W PSUs for like $50.

ThermalTake is a perfectly fine PSU brand.

Yea, those X1800XTs are some thirsty motherf*ckers.

some of you guys are showing those modular PSUs those connectors add resistance that equals to 2 feet of wire.
i would go with the antec smartpower series 550watt

well google is my friend this is why

Quote:
Due to their look, convenience, and cost savings for manufacturers, modular plugs have become a popular power supply feature. Unfortunately, there has been little or no discussion of the impact of this feature on overall performance and reliability. The fact is, modular plugs limit power by adding to electrical resistance. The voltage drop can be as much as would occur in 2 feet of standard wire. Worse yet, modular plugs utilize delicate pins that can easily loosen, corrode, and burn, creating the potential for a major system failure.
