    The Corsair CMPSU-650TX comes with a rebate which brings it down to $79.99. Hard to beat right now, awesome PSU.

    For what it's worth, we've continually chosen the PSU for our buying guides (usually as the mid-range budget selection).

    The 650TX is an excellent choice to consider.

    You can also go with the equally-good, but cheaper Corsair 400CX and Antec BP500U if the 650TX is out of your budget.

    if i were to replace the 9800gt card with a ASUS GeForce GTS250 would that bump up psu requirement?

    or whats the min wattage psu ill need for this pc with the gts250 compared to 9800gt?

    Not really. The GTS 250 is essentially a rebranded 9800GTX+ with more VRAM. Power requirements will be more or less the same, give or take an amp.

    Either of the PSUs above will be more than sufficient IMO.
