Yeah, it's been a while since I've asked about building a new computer (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic348641.html) and I still haven't gotten around to buying parts yet (waiting for the holidays!)

Since I'm not doing Crossfire or anything, I don't need that big of a power supply. Anyways, I just saw this power supply on the Microcenter website (under Hot Deals!) and was wondering if it's any good. It seems extremely inexpensive.

You will want to look at the 12 volt Rails on the power supply to determine what is adequate for your video card and other components.

For your set up I would recommend this: CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-650HX 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - 119.99

+3.3V@24A, +5V@30A, +12V@52A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@3.0A

THat should provide you enough room to upgrade later.

If FSP is still the OEM on that StealthXstream, it is a very good power supply.
