Recommended PSU?

  1. I just bought a new video card and a second hard drive, so its time to upgrade my PSU as well.... Any recommendations for the system listed below? Please keep the term "cheap bastard" in mind when recommending, as I am pretty poor after the last two upgrades :)

    Dimension 9150
    Pentium D Core 2.8Ghz
    Sony DVD/CD Combo Drive
    Pioneer 111d DVD DL Drive
    80GB Seagate SATA II HD
    250GB Seagate SATA II HD
    2GB Corsair DDR2 PC2-4200 533Mhz RAM
    PCI-E EVGA 7900 GTX
    Audigy 4 Sound Card

    Let me know if you need any other info. If possible, I'm trying to spend under $100 for the PSU and was checking out this Rosewill unit

    I'm not sure if 600w will cut it though...

    Thanks in advance for your help! :wave:

    Oh and my monitor is a Dell 2007WFP... I dont think that matters, but I want to cover all bases just in case :)

    ROSEWILL isnt that good ...

    this 500W psu .. will blow it away, just on the fact that it will last longer ;)

    Looks for :
    Cooler master
    PC power & cooling

    Maybe look into a Core2Duo sometime, if you motherboard supports it. :)

    Yeah, I agree with the Core2Duo comment. When I bought my PC I didnt know enough about the Core2Duo to realize I was making a mistake :(
