Default Best Cheap PSU for my Computer?

Hello, Im trying to find the best PSU for my computer that will be cheap. I dont know anything about PSU's and even after looking at the PSU sticky thread im clueless...

Basically I need a PSU that can hand overclocking a Q6600.

Heres what ill be running:

Q6600
8800GT
GSKILL 4GB (2x 2GB) DDR2 1000
Tempest case with lots of fans
DFI Lanparty p35
250GB HDD
DVD Burner
22" Monitor

I dont plan on SLI
I dont want 10 HDD's
This is all I want to run. I need a GOOD PSU that can run all this and CHEAP($0-$70)

Thanks!

Just buy a semi used on craigslist.

I scored a 600 watt one, brand new, for 50 bucks (ofcourse not tax or shipping)

The most foolish noob mistake is to cheap out on a PSU...

But the Xclio is enough for what you have... It can probably handle a minor OC
