Question Power Supply Question

I'm running a P4 3.2 - GeForce 6800GT - 2GB of 3200 Ram - DVD-RW - CDRW - 80GB HD and a Cool Master Jet 4 heatsink. I've had problems with a cheaper 450w PSU crapping out and I need some advice on what to do. Should I get a better 450-500Watt PSU or go with a less expensive 550-580Watt PSU. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

There is this sweet new power supply that has come out. Its in my opinion the best PSU ever made. You can find it here.

A GT really should have more power than 450w

yeah 480 recommended just saying your 450w probably isnt enough. Especiallly for overclocking.

Yeah, probably best to get 500W thought just in case you want to upgrade or add something again. That PSU Airox recommended is also very good.
