    I'm planning on upgrading my current psu to one more suitable for my machine and I need some suggestions.

    Looking to spend between $150 - $250 on it. Modular or not doesn't matter to me. It just has to be a GOOD psu with the ability to power....

    2x 7800gtx's
    4x 7200rpm hdd's
    1x 10,000rpm hdd
    1x optical drive
    4600 (or higher) amd x2 cpu
    3 or 4 fans
    a8n-premium mobo

    I was thinking 550w or above and good quality should get the job done.

    PC Power and Cooling hands down the best, also expensive.

    But I'd look at a OCZ Powerstream to save some cash, they are reliable.

    Owned 3 $200+ PSU's in the last year. 2 Failed. 1 was too messy. This one is rock solid. Fits right up to my ASUS SLi-Premium and 2 6800 Ultra's in SLI, 3 WD HD's SATA, 5 case fans, and 1 Floppy, and...
    1 CD/DVD drive.

    My advice, is get somethign SLI certified and has this more than 30amps on the 12v rail

    Ah, Enermax. I've only owned 1 so I didn't really want to recommend them yet. 330w, still works :p

    I like enermax, but would not recommend one in your situation. For that system, and your willingness to spend decent cash on a good PSU, there is no substitute for "PC Power & Cooling"
