Default 7800GT power supplies

Hi, I'm new to the forums and I am currently buying parts to make a fast gaming computer. What power supply would you recommend that can run this below 50 bucks?

yeah, $50.00 is pretty unrealistic for a PCI Express / SLI sytem, if your MOBO is SLI. Either way, You should be looking at someting in the $80 - $200 range. The PSU must have 24 pin power and at least (1) 6pin molex for PCI express. Nothing less the 500watts and 20a on the 12v Rail.

i think that 500 watts minimum os very over the top. 420 is as low as i'd go, It just makes sense
