Personally, I think this one might best suit your needs since your on a budget.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182017

550w
12v rail 1 - 18A
12v rail 2 - 18A
Giving you a maximum of 36A available on the 12v rails.
I think you said you where getting the 3870??
It recommends 450W with 28A on 12v rail/rails.
I may be wrong, but the video card itself only draws 10A-15A under full load.

223 out 270 reviewers gave it 5 of 5.

If you can afford a better brand go for it.

For your case, I like the COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW Black/Silver Aluminum Bezel for $49.99 that coffeejunky pointed out.

I think you should get a better PSU to protect your investment.

That corsair is at a great price at the moment. and rosewill really isn't a name to trust (in my book)
If you want a good, cheap PSU look for thermaltake. I'm a bit of a thermaltake fanboy .
This one would do-

Tell me what you think.

I think it looks great!
Although I doubt you would have problems with the Rosewill, I personally have a Thermaltake and its been wonderful so far.

Absolutely.... a good PSU is definitely worth it considering your other components depend on it.
