I'm not a huge gamer myself but when there is a game that I really like to play, I like to be able to meet the specs at least. I play mostly NBA Live series, some RTS and FPS games. That's about it. Most of those games are pretty intense anyways but my current desktop system seem to be running them ok, so far. So I guess he really doesn't need a top of the line video card, but just for the **** of it, games like BioShock seem to use tons of resources

I really like this one:

Newegg.com - Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W SLI Ready ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply 115/230V CSA, CB, TUV, FCC, UL - Retail

I think this is the cheapest one I could find.

"Thou shall not skimp on thy power supply." OK, won't forget.

You did ask for "cheap" PSU and that Rosewill performs quite well according to the reviews. The specs look impressive enough to me.

Hmm, the 500w one is on sale at newegg.com for 29.99 after MIR, should I get that first, then when I upgrade my Graphic card to a 8800 or better, then switch to a 550W+ ? Will the 500w support my current build, except substitue the e6600 with a e6750 which I already bought for $190

You can go that way if you wish. You'll just end up paying more for a power supply. But on a positive side, at least you'll have a spare PSU to test with when you do get a higher performing PSU.

Man look at the long run and buy one PSU that you can keep using despite your ugrades.
