If you really want to be cheap just get one of the decent Rosewills:

In your price range, a good choice would be an XCLIO GOODPOWER 500W ATX 500W Power Supply. They are very well built and supply stable power.


The best bang for your buck, and still plenty of power for a 9600GT setup, the SILVERSTONE ST400 ATX 12V 2.2 400W Power Supply - $46.99. Extremely reliable, nice 12V amp rating.

Not at all. You only need a 400 watt PSU to run one of these, and only 450 for SLI. 500 watts is more than enough.

Not really, unless you're running a ton of hard drives or something.

EDIT: That Xclio might be your best bet.

See the thing is, I'd say you want at least 450 watts just to be safe, and for future upgrade ability (SLI, etc.)

With the exception of future water cooling or SLI, I don't see to much of a need for future proofing a PSU. Things are only getting more efficient, something that needs 500w today will only need 400w tomorrow.

The only thing I can see is new connectors, which would make the most expensive 1000w + today obsolete.

q6600@3.6 w/ 1.5v, 2 sata hdd's, dvd/cdr combo, 3 120mm fans, 8800GT(power hungry) = 358w full load.

It would work fine.

I order them like this: PC P&E, Enermax, Earthwatts, Seasonic.

$65 with mail-in-rebate

this psu is awesome, best one I've ever used. I also wrote a review about it at computervitals.com so check that if you want to. (you will find it in the hardware reviews section). I'm using it with a 9600gt too.

Good PSU, I'd still take the PC P&E w/ 23A on the +12v.

Even w/ a good overclock you'll come in under 300w, so it's more than enough.

That OCZ mammikoura posted is a beast with 72A available.

The PC P&E w/ 23A on the +12v is still shy of what a 9600GT requires. They need at the minimum of 400W with 26A on the 12V rail.

The OCZ has 17A on the +12v

The 9600GT barely draws any power at all...... and definitely doesn't need 26A.

it has enough watts yes.
but 23A is horrible for +12v.

even this $10 (after rebates) psu has more than 23a.

no. The ocz has 18a on a single +12v rail. 4 rails = 4 x 18A = 72A
