    Well mine right now 480, not cutting it, it was a cheap 24 pin that i needed. I'm upgrading to SLI probably and need more 12 volt. Mines only got 18 amps. I was wondering what I should get, nothing over expensive about 10-35 $ budget, yea pretty cheap but Still can get something half-way descent.

    uh......no, thanks for the help but your paying like half the $ just for the modular cabling. The only thing I like about that is the two 4 pin's for the mobo. I was thinking something simple with like 26 amps on the 12.

    Mushkin is same crap too. Check JG review and you will see that Topower PSU's are not good at all to be honest.
    http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_details.php?id=31
    485.5W with just 74% efficiency and with big ripple.
    And there is rebranded Enhance PSU id posted.
    http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_details.php?id=23
    487.8W with 81% efficiency and almost no ripple at all.
    And if you still can't afford 500w Enhance, get this http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_details.php?id=24
    407W with 82% efficiency for 400w PSU...no need to complain.
    Enhance ENP series is best bang for buck.

    No decent psus except that Mushkin for your budget range. Id recommend higher ended ones, but you wouldnt really like them :).

    If you dont want to risk your system on a cheap, crap PSU then you have to expand your budget.
    I dont understand people, they will spend $1000 dollars or so on a computer and put a $10 PSU in there.
    Like it prob. wont blow up (hahaha)
