$60 is not good to spend on a psu. You need to spend a good amount on a PSU or you can say goodbye to your whole computer.

Well I don't know what kinda psu's they sell there. But I'm getting the feeling that it's not good for the companies if the psu's destroy the whole computer once u use them because that would mean alot of lost money to the company when they need to replace the psu, and no one would buy from them again.

Atleast where I live the cheaper powersupplies work fine.
Something like this would be a nice psu for about $60

link worked for me ok heres what u should do, save a bit of money and get the 6800GS cause its an amazing card and even with 12 pipelines it performs almost as good as a 6800gt which is amazing i know cause i have that card and the power supply that mammikoura suggested (antec 450W power supply $66.99) will be fine

i was leaning more toward http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104935 Fortron PSUs easily beat out any Antecs. Fortron psus are the best budget psus. Even though Antec and TT have a long history in PSUs doesnt mean that they are good right now. That was back then, this is now. Other great psus are Seasonic, OCZ, and PCP&C.
