Nah, those are all the "super best ones"

50 bucks?

450 Watt Fortron.
or
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER eXtreme RP-500-PCAR ATX from factor 12V V2.01 500W Power Supply 110 - 115V/220 - 230V Nemko, TUV, cUL, CE, BSMI, FCC, CCC - Retail
or
Newegg.com - Rosewill Stallion Series Single 12cm Ball Bearing Fan RD500-2-SB ATX V2.2 500W Power Supply 115V/230 V UL, CSA, TUV, FCC - Retail
or
Newegg.com - COOLMAX CP-500T EPS12V 500W Power Supply 115/ 230 V UL, CSA, TUV - Retail

Of course, I would always reccomend purchasing a power supply on that grounds that one wouldn't need to replace it for at least 2-3 years.

Thats why I would rather you buy something more expensive and more than you need, NOW, so you don't have to buy a new power supply every time you upgrade or build a new computer.

The RP500 is a better choice for the same price. To power a 7600gs you need probably only around 20 amps. Look for a cheap RD400 rosewill if thats all you plan to ever have. However consider the RP500 to handle more powerful cards such as an 8800GT right now, which would run on an RP500.
