So the Antec ones will mentioned earlier have all the connections nessecary to work

I JUST got this OCZ 500W for my computer about 2 weeks ago after advice from many of the same people that posted here. This is a GREAT PSU...I can't emphasize that enough....Also, Antecs are great as mentioned...

That's not a bad power supply, but it only supplies 18A on the 12V rail which is not enough for today's video cards.

If you are planning on getting that HD 3850, you'll need at least a 450W PSU.

The cheapest power supply I feel comfortable in suggesting would be the Rosewill RD450-2-SB 450W Power Supply for $47.99. It's a decent PSU and it supplies plenty of amps.

pretty much that same 450watt people seem to think there are huge power differences for single dual and quad cores, there not that far apart
