I like Aspire a lot. For budget PCs go with 350 W or higher. Mid to high end PC's can go anywhere from 450 W on up. I currently have 450 Watts to power my setup in the sig. It works perfectly.

I went with a 580 watt PSU just to be on the safe side (running a AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 512MB GeIL, GEforce FX5900 128MB AGP 8X, Audigy 2 Value, etc)... I probably overdid it, but it is always better to overestimate, then underestimate.

They both look pretty good. I use the Powmax Demon power supply. It is low cost, but has the specifications and quality of a 90-100 PSU.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...163-018&depa=0

It is not in stock, but it has 49 customer reviews and a solid 5 stars. And 24 amps.
