Default PSU help

Well i came to me when i was looking at a power supply on newegg that i chose a PSU without SLI support and with a Mobo with SLI support i havent bought these items yet but i noticed that the size of the PSUs are ATX ATX12V and ATX12V/EPS12V
I am looking at this case and i dont no if the PSUs that are SLI ready will fit cuz they are ATX12V and the other 12V one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811166040

I need a PSU thats around the $50 mark and will fit in the case plz give recommendations

This is a great value power supply:

It's got a lot more power than the one Rudster recommended for just a few dollars more.

Lol, if he's only spending $50 on a PSU, I doubt he needs any PCI-E connectors at all.

ummm i going to get
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131013
Its SLI ready and i want a PSU thats SLI Ready so if i get 2 of the same cards then i can just get the cards and not the PSU
I need to go low on the money because i chose a AMD Athon 64 X2 5600+ and that more expensive Mobo so i have to go cheaper o and if that is a bad PSU then up the price a little

What video cards are you going to SLI?? Assuming they're only like 7600GTs, the one I recommended would be more than enough.

So they are 7600GTs?? It's only not SLI certified because it doesn't have 2 PCI-E power connectors. The 7600GT doesn't use external power adapters, it just draws it's power from the PCI-E slot. A 7600GT SLI setup only requires 400 watts of power, and only 24A on the +12V rail. That power supply has a total of 36A on the +12V rail. In other words, 2 7600GTs in SLI wouldn't even faze it.
