I know it's a bit more, but it supports PCI-E. The reviews seem good.
I was just about to suggest that same PSU and then I saw your post.

I have the OCZ Powerstream 520W, and it is truly a great power supply. My Powerstream is both 24-pin and 20-pin. You can "clip-on" the additional 4-pin if your running a 24-pin. It's very easy to use.

I would assume that the 520W Modstream would have the same idea.

PCI-E boards use a 24-pin connector
AGP borards use a 20-pin connector

the PSU he was referring to was a 20-pin PSU

god damned you US dudes get PC components so much cheaper that over here in the UK.

I spent £80 on my PSU and you people spend $80 (bout £50) on an almost identical one.

Damned you :P
