What PSU for overclocking

Im getting a new computer with 1 vid card but want to be able to add another for SLI so I want to get a SLI power supply. Is this one stable and good for overclocking or does anyone have a different suggestion? I dont want to try to spend $100 or less for a power supply.

I have that PSU, and it overclocks like a champ for me. You'll be hard pressed to find a much better one for the price. Also, it is SLI certified if you go that route in the future (it sports 38 amps on dual rails, so there's lots of power).

Not related to this post, but please fill in your system specs by going to the User CP, linked at the upper left corner of every page. It will help us help you better.

Another one to take a look at is the Sunbeam Nuuo 550W for $79.

I was actually thinking of Actec before I clicked on your link. Go for it.

The Antec is a little dated, though. I think the Sunbeam NUUO would be a better choice, and it's cheaper

I think the DFI motherboards require a 24-pin power connector. Does this power supply have a 24-pin or a 20-pin power connector. I don't think NewEgg says in its description.

EDIT: Just found the picture NewEgg had of the power connector and it is 24-pin ..... thank god cause i already orderd my new computer
