Just remember, the powesrupply is the most important part of your computer, power supply gives bad voltage from being cheap, you pay for it with a bad motherboard or processor.

Exactly. A cheapo $60 won't cut it.

Antec and OCZ are both good in this area. However, if you want the best, and futureproofing, an SLI ready 510w/800w PC Power and Cooling are the two best on the market...they're $200 and $400 respectively...but they're good...
