Default PSU suggestion

does anyone know if 450watts +12v@20A is good enough for a 7600GT pci-e? if not,which one of these should i get?

33A to the +12v rail.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103464
dual 12v rails, +12v1@17a and +12v2@19a
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103937

which one of these is the better one? and will they both support my computer and my PCI-E slot? and do they have more then enough power for my rig+7600GT?
btw i have a Compaq Presario (SR1830NX)

20A is pushing it. The official word says you need a Minimum of 18A on the +12v rail for a Athlon 64 system. So you're kind of pushing it. I would buy one of those PSUs if I were you. I vote for the Antec Smartpower, looks excellent.

You add them together. +12v1@17a and +12v2@19a = 36A.

^^ Lol, I was about to say the same thing.

It does have a warranty, but you won't be needing it.
