listen to muffin man, a PSU isnt something you want to skimp on, pay for a good quality name brand power supply and save your self the headaches later

If you're going with an Antec PSU the EarthWatts 650W is a very solid PSU with a bit more power than the 520W listed. Plenty to power an i7 build with one or two graphics cards.

I say go for that power supply, the Antec Neo Eco 520W and since you are on a budget you can get this video card, even tough it doesn't have DX11, but still a very decent card.

Newegg.com - XFX HD-485X-ZNFC Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

If your build is for gaming the graphics card is the single most important part of it, don't cut your graphics card, cut anywhere but your graphics card. Get at least a 58xx series, a 5850 would be good choice for a budget.

I agree, it is the most important part on a gaming system. If he can get the 5850, awesome!

the 520w antec would power a rig like that with a 5850 fine, he wouldnt need to spend more money on an ea650w.
