Ive never had to buy a new PSU before and was wonderin if any one could recomend a decent one, my price limit is about 60-70.

It would be running a Q6600 and Evga 8800GTS superclocked (i dont think i'll go Sli)

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

where will you be getting it from, that's critical in picking the best models

you should spend your whole budget with those 2 components, overclocking requires stable power, make sure you get the new revision G stepping with the quad, the old B stepping ran too hot for it's design and is flawed

3 - 12 volt rails might even be better

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
