can't point one out with that info. You have to match the form factor and the amps coming off the rails and make sure that the new supply has all the lines you may need (SATA,PCIE,20/4 pin mobo connector) Thermaltake is the brand i like but there are other good ones out there.

Seasonics are very reliable and have a great warranty

The Psu im using now has:
Input Voltage 100 - 127V/ 200 - 240V
Input Frequency Range 47 - 63 Hz
Input Current 6/ 4A
Output +3.3V@18A,+5V@25A,+12V@14A,-12V@0.8A,+5VSB@2.0A.

Is that just this PSU or is that all my computer can handle? I see alot with
+3.3V, 28A
+5V, 36A
+12V, 16A
-12V, .8A
-5V, 0.5A
+5Vsb, 2A
Compatible or not with mine???
