If i were you i would not get that PSU. I would get one that is from a company that is known for quality. When i got my new PSU i got an Enermax, because they are known for high quality, stable power, and overall just rock solid PSU's. Mine is a 460w unit and it was not expensive at all. For about the same amount of money as the one you are looking at you can get one that will be much more reliable. Brands like Enermax, Seasonic, Sparkle, PC power & cooling, and a few more. I am sure others will have some more suggestions for you, but when buying a PSU you want really want to get quality as everything else is dependant on it.

This is where I would aim for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103495

480W Enermax $70

But EVEN BETTER, the 485W Enermax Noisetaker is a brilliant unit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103457

Only $75 and definitely worth the extra $5

arnt the amps on the 12V rails kinda low on the 480W Enermax? also ive been looking at the OCZ PSU that Seperah posted above and it looks rather nice 450W, 26A on the 12V line, and modular cabling, now i know OCZ memory is good stuff but what about thier PSUs?

Quite the opposite. The OCZ only has a single +12V rail, at 26A.

The Enermax has dual +12V rails, at 17A each.

As a result, the Enermax has a combined 34A, compared to 26A on the OCZ.

Dual rail PSUs are a better option for high power GPUs, such as your 6800.
