Default Choosing the right PSU

Hey everyone,

I just built a new PC for a friend, but he had to choose a different graphics card, so case inbuilt PSU is not sufficient anymore.
However he now needs a new one for firing up a NVidia 260, as he does not have that much money anymore, he would like to have one, which is qutie cheap, does not have to be silent though

Is there one you would especially recommend me?


Regards,
Michael

PS: The rest of his setup:
-Core 2 Duo E8400 (E0)
-MSI neo3-P45
-2gb RAM

both are very good choices, and both would power your pc w/out problem, it really comes down to if u want modular or not.
