Just make sure you choose one with enough voltage on each rail, i.e. at least 20A on the 12V
Wow...that much?

For the 1100W PSU, it's almost $500...c'mon. That's too much for us. I could live with 400W-475W....up to 600W....after that, it's useless

It relies heavily on what your video card can support too. Hardcore SLi people will love to use a 600watt PSU while the typical user like me will do perfectly fine with a 450watt PSU. I'm sure if you have a regular video card running on an Athlon 64 system, you can get away with 350watts but that is pushing it. I would say minimum is like 400watt for that comfort zone.
