What's your system consist of? Motherboard, CPU, video card, drives, etc.

A really good one to get that wont break the bank is the FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX450-PN 450W Power Supply for $49.99. It has plenty of power for your system and supplies 36A on the dual 12V rails which is more than enough for your video card.

12v ratings are getting more important now for gfx like Atomic Rooster said, so always make sure u get one with preferable dual rails, the 8800GTX is said to recommend Quad rails. Also cant stress this enough, dont go and buy a cheapy one if u have a beefy system, the specs they state and the specs they deliver under stress are often very different.
