Recommend an Antec True - 440w - $89.95 ... or 550w - $119.95.
They actually put out the amount of power they say, unlike some.
This is a quality PSU and will hold up very well. Some cheap PSUs will go out and take the mobo with it.
You can order one, if you want, from http://www.northalabamacomputers.com/ - they have reasonable shipping prices; or your local store might carry 'em.

I'm running the 400watt version on my Vista rig and its doing a great job. The only thing is the 12v rail is 11.85v consistently.

It's a quiet, heavy duty powersupply.

11.85V is well within the 5% +/- Tolerence Range.

12V X .05 == .60 therefor all values Between 11.40V and 12.60V is/are adequete.
