Default PSU around $100

I'm currently looking for a psu for my new build for around a $100, no big deal if it is more or less, whatever would work best. You can see what I am planning to use in my sig, and yes I do know it's a crappy processor and mobo, but I got a very good deal on them and couldn't pass it up.

Yeah I just got mine of newegg for 139.99 and it is awesome. Looks great, supports SLI, all wires are either sleeved or twisted, intake and exhaust fans, adjustable voltage, and the green led's match my case prefectly.

Thanks for all of the help, sounds like the ocz powerstream is the way to go so we'll see how it works out in my new rig.
