Hope you guys are keeping in mind of my system specs... I won't be crossfiring. I might overclock this in December.

GoodPower 500W $57.99 << about to go with this one
Newegg.com - XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W ATX 500W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail

Rosewill 500W $54.99
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP500 ATX12V v1.3/ EPS12V 500W Power Supply 115/230 V CSA, CB, TUV, FCC, UL - Retail

Thanks guys, I think I'll go with xclio goodpower 500w. Let me know if my system requires something more powerful, but it seems good enough.

the rosewill have more connectors and is said to last 20k hours more than xclio... but rosewill doesn't have a pci-e connector... what does that mean?

here's another option, it has active PFC and is working fine for me, but those are 2 good budget options u have right now, and you'll need one PCI-E connector
Newegg.com - MSI TurboStream MS-4500-020 ATX12V V2.2 500W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, FCC - Retail
