Here is my build should i stick with this one or find another... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/R4Mhzy Also does anyone know all the cables needed to be braided in this build? I am looking for inexpensive sleeved cables, and I am unsure what cables I need...

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks.

The EVGA G1 is kinda mediocre and overpriced.

There are some good ones for $60-65, such as the EVGA B2, Fractal Design Integra M, Seasonic S12II, and at least one superb one with the $90 EVGA G2. Maybe the XFX Pro650W if you don't mind a completely nonmodular unit. The generic recommendations are Antec, Seasonic, XFX, EVGA (G2, GS, B2), but there are other good PSUs out there.

So is there a good one for around $50 or so bucks that is at least semi modular...

A couple, maybe, like the Cooler Master VSM (RS550-AMAA-G1) and Thermaltake TPD-0550M, but $50 is really, really scraping the bottom of the barrel for what I'd use on a build like yours. You should be allotting more to getting a PSU for a high-end computer.

I agree. You really should be spending more like $65.

If you want a top quality unit on the cheap an don't mind non-modular, get a Seasonic 520w. Currently pretty cheap.
