Default Need mid range PSU

Need a new PSU to replace my current generic 480W one.

Current specs:
E6600 @3.0Ghz
8800GT 512mb
4x 1Gb PC2-8500 (i think, but doesnt matter)
1x 7200RPM 360GB SATA HDD
1x 7200RPM 80GB IDE HDD

I need the new PSU because the wattage of the current one is almost too low to handle my system. i also need it because it currently only supports 1x Sata Drive, and i need to take the old IDE one out and replace with a new Sata 160GB one. So it needs to be able to support two Sata drives (though im sure most do nowadays, thats whats important atm)

my budget is 50

thanks in advance.

PHP + MYSQL, ASP.Net + C# with SQL, WCF, Python, XHTML + CSS, HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery, Flash + ActionScript 3, XML, SVG.
