And yes all of my parts I have bought for my PC have been off Newegg. As far as price goes, I want to keep it as cheap as possible but I also don't want to skimp.. I was thinking approx. $100.. Just want an idea of what I need to stay away from.. Been watching the prices on PCpartpicker and hoping to snag a good deal soon.
What concerns me is you want to keep it as cheap as possible. Let's say you get a good 850W PSU. That would only be appropriate if you wanted to have 2-3 top-of-the-line video cards (that is, single GPU video cards, not dual GPU cards). So, let's say that you end up never having more than one top-of-the-line single GPU video card. If that were to be the case, then you could get a good 450W PSU (or 550W at the most) and have all the power that you need. This would cost you a lot less money.
I could probably list all of the PSUs to avoid, but that would be a long list and it would be much more difficult for both you and me than just looking at PSUs based on your needs/wants and budget. Since we're using PCPartPicker, I would like to use it to look for PSUs, but I wouldn't feel right recommending something like a good 850W PSU if it turns out that you'll never need anything 'bigger' than a good 450-550W PSU. That extra money spent on the 850W unit could be put towards a top-of-the-line 450-550W PSU.
(or, just a very nice one, at least)
For example, the 550W SeaSonic G Series is $79.99 shipped from Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/SeaSonic-550-Watt-CrossFire-Certified-SSR-550RM/dp/B00918MEZGEdited by TwoCables - 8/27/13 at 9:02pm
