Default Power Supply, does it matter which I buy?

Ok so I don't buy Power Supplys to often so I don't know what to look for in them. I noticed that the one I was looking for says "PCI-E Connectors NO" ect. ect..

So I want to get a power supply that I wont have to upgrade for a while. (Years)

Thanks $150 MAX

OCZ GameXstream 600w or 700w. great psus. reliable, stable outputs, and plenty of power for just about whatever you want to do with them.
