I just fried the PSU on my computer, and am now in the market for a new one. I liked my Antec 430 (RIP :() but don't have the cash to get a new one. So, does anyone have any recommendations on a decent PSU (min. 400w, 8 molex connectors, at least 2 fans) that won't break the bank? Or recommendations on what to stay away from?

Check here. 39 shipped ain't bad.

I have the 500w in for testing and so far it's doing ok on an overclocked barton system (2500+@3200+). Except the 12v rail is rather low. Usually in the 10.40 range. But no problems under load.

Thanks for the responses guys. The one in the link posted looks to be just what I'm looking for! I'm probably gonna get my mobo RMA'd before connecting anything to it anyways, so I have probably a couple weeks to look around before actually buying anything.
