I'm thinking I'm buying a new power supply for a new video card. ( looking at the X1600's since they're afordable and seem like a decent midranged card with all the new features ) But my 300Watt Bestec power supply doesn't look like it'll do it. My expertise in computers kinda' dies when it comes to which company makes durable power supplies. I don't any extra devices hooked up to my computer, such as extra DVD-RW drives, or extra Hardrives. So could any you kindly point out some good deals for me ( Preferably on a Canadian site like Tigerdirect.ca since I don't want to pay all that extra taxes for crossing the boarder in shipping ) I'd like a decent one that would last, but not be to expensive, like around 60$ (Canadian) if possible? Thanks.

In the past I would have mentioned trying to buy it by the pound as the heavier they are, the better they are in general. And Antec and ThermalTake would immediately come to mind. Ultra has recently made a large impact with their new line of X-connect PSUs, they are a little more expensive, but may be worth it, at least till the rest to the manufacturers get on the band wagon and produce their own modular systems.

If money isn't an issue, check out this one.

If you don't care about the modular design, check out this one, or this one.

For what ever reason, tigerdirect doesn't carry Antec PSUs.
