Default good ~$50 or less- psu

the one i have right now isn;t sufficient enough, it causes freezes and restarts..
it has to power:
x1650 (agp) 512mb
2 hdds
2 cd/dvd
amd 64 3200 (939)

probably i single +12v rail with high amp would be good, but i dont know what brands are good, stable and etc...

i dont want to spend too much, im really broke, but i need to at least fix this problem before handing this comp to my brother. he just got a 22" lcd, and his current system is garbage, and i mean REAL garbage, mines **** too, but at least it will run all games hes playing.. i think that the most demanding game hes gonna be playing will be left4dead, and that runs pretty nice

You should jump on this deal: - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

Great power supply with plenty of watts and amps for your system.

Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
