Tigerdirect.ca isn't good for PSUs, way too expensive. What PSU do you have currently? That 500W Cooler Master are the ones that are made by Seventeam and they aren't labeled properly. From testing we know that it can only do ~350W at normal operating temperatures, the Plus 460 will do 420W and is cheaper. You aren't going to find a 500W that is worth buying for <$45. It all depends on what you have right now and if spending $45 will be enough for an upgrade. Odds are you are going to have to go to~$60 to get a respectable 500W PSU like this OCZ or Silverstone.

Why should he avoid the Antecs? The Basiq are proven to be good budget PSUs for systems that don't need much power and the Earthwatts are one of my first choices for budget mainstream 400-500W. They are built on a good platform (Antec cut some corners to save money but they are still solid PSUs) and have good efficiency and performance. Yes there are better PSUs at this range, but if they have a good price there's no reason not to get one.

Heh, that's another one of the Seventeam built units, so actual output is like 400W. It's hard to see but everything that starts with RP-xxx (look by "Details:" on that page) for the manufacturers part number for the Cooler Masters are the Seventeam units and should be avoided. What PSU do you currently have?

Ah, it's so good I can't find any information about it, let alone find one for sale . Does it have a 12V rating somewhere on it's label? Also, are you OCing or running stock? If you are running stock I have a few options for you like these two from directcanada but they are out of stock: Antec EA-380 ($50 at ncix), Silverstone ST400 (this is $54 at ncix). The only other option I have for you is the eXtreme Power Plus 460 I linked in post #3 and #12. If you do overclock, you should really think about getting the OCZ or Silverstone I linked in post #12. That's really the best I can do unless you find some other sites you trust or a new deal pops up before you go to buy a PSU.

The Coolmax aren't any good either . And ca.buy.com didn't have anything worth mentioning. I wish the Antec and Silverstone were in stock at the cheap site, they would be perfect for you. The Cooler Master Plus 460 would be my 3rd choice out the of the three. Maybe by the time you get the GTS, one of them will be in stock. I've had a look around on various sites and none were cheaper than directcanada (ncix usually is second best with prices). If all else fails, get the Cooler Master or go to NCIX for the Antec or Silverstone where they are a little more expensive.

edit: If you are willing to pay $65 for the not so good Coolmax, get the OCZ or Silverstone (which has 2 PCI-E) I listed in post #12 since they are better PSUs.

I wouldn't be as concerned about wattage as I would be about amperage. Quality and stability are major factors when purchasing a powersupply.

I would suggest taking a look around here before making a decision.
