Question Power Supply Selection

Hey guys, I was thinking about getting the OCZ StealthStream 600W PSU for my budget build but am wondering if you guys think there are better options for me. Here is the system:

Intel E2180 at 3.5GHz
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
2GB PC2 6400
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
250GB WD Caviar
8800GT or GTS
Probably throw it all in a CM Stacker case.

So yeah, please suggest some PSU's for me if the OCZ is not my best option. I am trying to keep the PSU under $90
Thanks

That Xclio will not handle the computer that I am building but the Corsair would. But it is falling just outside of my budget for this.
