Power supply help needed

In the next week or so i wil be in the market for a new power supply. I plan on spending about 50 bucks or so. Can anyone recommend a good, solid PSU with around 450w for that price? Any help is appreciated.

Wow, i cant believe no one had any suggestions. Oh well. I think i found what i am going to get and i wanted some opinions on it before i buy it. On Newegg this morning i found an Enermax EG465P-VE(FC) 460w. It looks great and has gotten shining reviews. Any comments?

You cant go wrong with an Enermax. Ive used them for years and have only good to say about them. If you can get that for $50, go for it.

Well, i ended up getting the Enermax and i couldnt be happier. All my voltages are rock solid, and the power problems i was having are all gone. The Enermax's main supply cables are copper shielded and are REALLY heavy duty, this thing is awesome, i cant believe it was only 52$.....NewEgg ROCKS, they got it to me a day early. Also the fans on this thing are thermal controlled, but since i keep my case open with a small fan blowing through the whole case, the PSU fans dont have to work very hard.

Did it help on your OCing?
Glad to hear you say good words about that psu, because I plan to get one very soon.

I havnt tried changing my clock speeds yet, but i plan to very soon. I am sure it will help. My former PSU voltages were very unstable and alot of times outside the +/- 5% range. This Enermax is VERY stable and always within voltage limits, so i am sure it will make a difference in OCing. I will keep you up to date on my OCing, i am very hopeful though.
