Default Re: 9800GT for cheap, or GTX 260?

Would a power supply like this work well enough for the computer? It's a fair bit cheaper than either Antec, and I would like to keep the cost of this upgrade down as much as possible.

By the time I get around to upgrading the rest of the computer, I have the feeling even a GTX 260 will be starting to show its age on newer games, so I'd rather wait and pick up a newer card with the rest of it.

EDIT: Saw that this Rosewill got a good mention in the PSU thread, so I think I'll go with it. What's the worst that can happen? *knock on wood*.
