hey everyone i need a new power supply as i only have a 350w in my case.

so my system specks are:
AMD 64 +3200
1 GB DDR 2700 RAM
Asus A8N-SLi Deluxe Motherboard
Sony cd-rw crx320e 52x/32x/52x/16x
120 GB and 160 GB hardrive ide

and im going to be getting a 7900gt pci-e and ill probably get a second one later for sli

so basically i want to get the best power supply for the least money. i dont really know much about them but i want one that will give me plenty of power for now and the future but i dont need any fancy or crazy overkill. just something practical and cheap. noise isnt really an issue.

any help?
thanks

Where about are you in the world, US i would go for Antec, Enermax or thermaltake you will need about 500W UK i would go Hyper(cheap but good and cool looking) or Tagan(they might have those US). Akasa and ultra are also good brands if a little expensive sometimes, but you can often get a good deal, you will be looking for about 500W supply maybe 550 is you want the extra in future possibly.

What you want is a high amp PS. The higher the better. A pair of SLI video cards can use up 150 watts by themselves.

It ain't cheap but i would pick this one.

Its the best price for the most amps you can get.
