Default please help ... PSU decision

im upgrading my 9600 Pro and ordering a X800 Pro AGP tonight online .. i need a new PSU to go with it though so i need opinions on the PSU's im looking at .. i've never installed a PSU and really dont know much about them other than that the customer service guy at ATI's 800 number said i needed a minimum 300W PSU with 15 amps on the 12+V rail (currently have generic Raidmax 420W w/ 13amps on the +12v rail) .. so im looking at a couple of PSU's at zipzoomfly (yeah i know newegg rules but they charge tax in my state + shipping and zipzoom doesnt charge me tax and has free fedex 2 day lol) there are a ton 300W+ in my price range ($50-$60) but most dont have the details as in number of 4pin molex connectors etc etc .. so these are the main 2 im looking at ... or

if you guys could please reassure me that these will run a X800 Pro AGP card ... or if not please link me to a $60 or under PSU at zipzoom (or newegg but please compensate for sales tax and shipping) that will run it also like i said i've never installed a PSU .. i have this ATX mid tower

are ATX power supplies and ATX cases universally interchangable? or might i run into problems mounting the PSu in the case?

thanks in advance for any help ... please give your honest (and speedy lol) opinions, as i said im ordering this tonight so i'll be checking this post before placing my order

either one of the ultra's will work fine. i'd go for the first one listed just to lower your electric bill, but it doesn't matter. either one will work.
