The 550 watt Antec TruePower Trio is a great choice. If you would order off another site, you can get it for $75:

It's $85 from newegg:

It may not have insane wattage for the price, but it's an awesome PSU. Will power even an 8800GTX pretty easily.

Yeah, much better than the one you posted. It's actually got 42A on a single +12V rail, which is awesome. To put it in perspective, the 8800GTX minimum requirement is only 28A. No idea why they advertise it differently...

i like a single rail better that way you dont have to worry about putting all your crap on the one rail and overloading it. that way the amps you dont use can go to any other compenent no matter what.

It's the same as any other PSU. They all use the ATX format.
