Default Good PSU's

Seeing as its looking like I'm going to have to buy a brand new PSU offer up some good PSU's need atleast 450 wats (i think) because of 6800 GT.

Just throw some good PSU's at me and tell me where to buy at.

Thanks.

I recomend antec. They might be more expensive, but its the blood of your pc, so its ok to spend a little more.

You might want to get a 24 pin psu, and an adapter to fit your current 20 pin mobo, just so when you upgrade to a new mobo, you dont have to replace a perfectly good psu. Future proof it.

Just to clear things up has to be atleast 24 pin. Have a 24 mobo.

Dont want to get an adapter. Just do it all at the same time.
