What type of GPU your new rig has? Based on what I saw, a good 400W PSU should be plenty of power and lots head room for you. Something likes this should be fine.

I've always had good experience with Ultra PSU's. And I agree, with your set up you don't need much. Something around 400 seems good.

Right now the 500w power supplies seem to be the sweet spot as far as price/required power go, and should be able to meet your needs nicely.

The Corsair 450VX Lins recommended is a quality PSU (5 year warranty), and so is the Antec earthwatts 430W, which I believe carries a 3 year warranty. They both operate between 80-85% efficiency and are built to last. The Antec has dual 12v rails while the Corsair has a single 12 volt rail. Either one should work just fine for you.

If you want to up a little, Corsair 550 is good too.

Need help here, too. I was thinking about the Thermaltake Toughpower 850W, but do I need that much power? I may eventually get a second MSI NX8800GT to run SLI. What do you all recommend?

i recommend a PC power and cooling PSU's a bit expensive but very stable PSu's
Also you might wanna get like a 610 watts so you have some head room for OC'ing, future builds or power hungry hardware.Or get the 470watt one for this build. My psu is at its 3rd build already and no problems what so ever

Heres some:

610 watts single rail@49 amps
470 watts single rail@26amps
