If you really can't afford it, use current PSU until you can.

To OP, cheap PSU's dont usually last. They might go for a few months, but usually just fry themselves and hopefully, not your components. It is worth it to spend the $75 on a decent power supply ASAP.

The corsair PSU I have has done me and the other 2 computers in my house well. None of the 3 have had any problems.

*Edit* To the post above me, Ocz PSU's are lackluster at best. I have seen multiple die (some of which I have owned, some friends). I would not recommend Ocz for anyone.

the coolermaster extreme cannot produce it rated power at all. it can at most product ~450w without the ripple going out of spec.
for the antec basicq.. the quality is also rather substandand units based on some old platform by fsp. clearly those are not good units.

the stealthxstream is ok as its build on a fsp platform. i just forgot which one
the modxstream however, is build on a sifia unit which had reliability issues.

The BP550 is a very average performing Delta unit, and isn't worth the asking price, and the CM eXtreme Powers.... well they're just bad.

And OCZ isn't bad (although not a great choice in this case either), the Stealthxstream II's are pretty solid budget PSU's.

I'd not run under 600watt for 69xx cards in a system. I could hear an antec 550 sagging under load from a 6970 and switched up to an 850; the card's performance improved. They're roughly the same cards.

Remember that all these newer cards monitor their power input and while they WILL RUN on podunk cheese-dip supplies... its only because they're smarter than you are.

Also keep in mind that some of the most awesome supplies on the market cost less than a new graphics card, let alone an entire computer.

The BP550 is Delta. The Basiq 350/430 are FSP, though.

Must have been an older/lower end Antec. Maybe the pre-2008 version of the BP-550, which had like a 312W +12V capacity (or something like that--don't remember), which makes it a 350-400W by modern standards.

A quality unit, like the TruePower New 550W, wouldn't struggle at all. In fact, I doubt a NeoECO 400C would have much difficulty.

And the cards don't monitor their power input from the PSU, they monitor their VRMs. On modern ATI cards to prevent rare instances of the VRMs overheating, on Nvidia cards because the VRMs are about as underspec'd as a lawnmower engine in a semi truck.

Personally I would not trust it with multi-hundred dollar components...
