Or this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153028

They both are thermaltake 500 And will this be enough for the 8800 Geforce ?

neither is good. These have the usual cheap low amp multiple 12V supplies (14/15A). When checking power supplies pay close attention to the max amperage on the 12V rail(s). Usually a single 12V rail (with high amperage is best. Eg my PSU has a 60A single rail architecture). Also look at efficiency and noise levels.

For an 8800 GTS, I recommend the pc power & cooling 750W or 610W. Seasonic and Silverstone also make some great supplies. Also check out FPS.

Dont cheap out on the supply. For an 8800 card, get something for well over $100. You get what you pay for much like everything else.

550~600w is enough for a GTS. 750w can run SLI GTX.

Which GTS are you getting? 320MB or 640MB?

I don't know anything on either of the PSUs, sorry.

Ok, so nothing is good for $60. Its not about being high-tech as opposed to high quality. PSU quality is heavily a function of the quality of components (eg fets, capacitors etc), so the good ones just cost more. I would seriously recommend the PCP&C 610w. Never cheap out on PSU, because debugging PSU induced problems is very difficult, not to mention the noise, heat and poor efficiency (leading to higher electric bills).

One of these two would be good.

One is marginally less than your budget, the other nominally more.

PC P&C is one of the most noteable PSU manufacturers there is...

...but they were just bought out, though I don't know if that will make a difference.

They cost moola, but are worth it if one has the scratch.

PC power and cooling is a very well respected PSU manufacturer.

If you don't plan on going SLI I would suggest what I have, the Corsair HX520. Works great with my GTX, runs silent, and very cool. In fact, I don't think I've ever even felt it get slightly warm. 5 year warranty as well.
