Default PSU recommendations for 8800gts?

Can anyone recommend some power supply units for the 8800gts 320MB. I don't want to go completely overboard. Probably something not over 90 or 100 dollars. I'll be running two hard drives, an optical drive, ds3 motherboard, and some Ballistix 2gb DDr800 ram.

anything 500W and over should be more than enough, however don't go to cheap if you don't have to I would recommend atleast a 2year Warranty on it, I had an Aspire one that cost $49 come DOA i sent it back after having to buy one to make sure my system worked, then a year later the Aspire one died conveniently after the warranty expired.

I don't know of NZXT's reputation on PSUs, but look at the ones I listed before. Any of those will run an 8800GTS. And they're well known names too, unlike the NZXT.

Oh I meant NZXT not a well known, for their PSUs, but their cases are pretty cool.
