Yeah that psu is alittle expensive i would go with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371004 which should be more than enough for that graphics card.

Likely a good match, but it also depends on what other hardware you are running in your computer.

From an electrical perspective, those Corsair PSU's are fantastic whereas the Antec's are only mediocre typically.

Yep, that PSU looks good. If you have the money for the Corsair, by all means get it - it's a great PSU. But if you want to save money, the Antec Basiq will be fine.

If you look at the Corsair it gives you all this stuff you dont need..

8 peripheral connectors
2 floppy connectors
SLI Support 2 pci express connectors
4 sata connectors

i dont think the OP is going to use all of that...

The Antec Basic is just more practical

Surely you don't want a G80 GTS for $205? for $210, you can get the new GTS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127325 and for $160, you can get this awesome GT: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130359
