It depends on the model.

Poor efficiency on that unit. You can find an 80 PLUS Certified PSU for about the same price. Any of the OCZ ModXStream units would be a good match for your system, and the 500W version right now has a nice $10 off promo code on Newegg.

If you don't care about modular cables, this Seasonic S12II 620W is a great deal. Even better efficiency than the OCZ since it's 80 PLUS Bronze, higher wattage rating, 15% promo code, and no rebate to worry about.

Found this on the Egg Seem like a good deal?

I'm probably either going to be going with this or a Thermaltake 750 Watt I found for 55 shipped. Any suggestions on those 2 choices?

That Shellshocker deal has expired, so I don't know which PSU you were looking at.

Thermaltake isn't generally known for making high quality power supplies. Also, don't be fooled by wattage ratings. There are two main reasons for this:

1) Many manufacturers (Logisys, other cheap brands) will overstate their wattage ratings while others understate (Seasonic), so it can be very misleading.
2) Even if you go with a top-end GPU like an HD7970, you will not need more than a high quality 500W PSU to power it. Any 500W 80 PLUS Bronze (or Silver/Gold/Platinum) units from Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, OCZ, maybe Thermaltake will be a good match for a single-GPU system. If you want to go Crossfire or SLI later on, get a 650W-750W PSU.

Which Thermaltake 750W were you looking at?

By the way, check out this deal:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?SID=u0t0f0fp68634dd0c0s701&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&Item=N82E16817371031

80 PLUS (not Bronze, but still decent), reliable brand, reliable seller, plenty of wattage, single 12v rail. Expires tonight though, so get it quickly if you want it.

Went ahead and pulled the trigger on that one.

That's actually the EXACT deal I linked to earlier, same PSU, price and everything. it was a Shell Shocker deal on the front page earlier.

Thanks for the input on the PSU! Now if I can be patient enough maybe I'll get a shot at a nice GFX card soon!

Or maybe I'll get really luck and my job interview will go good Friday and I can spend some money on an even nicer card lol.
