Try to think of it this way...if you buy a cheap PSU, it's like putting a time bomb in your computer that was made really badly. It may not go off ever and work out, in the end only killing itself after a few years....or it may blow your whole computer by surging power wildly and fry your mobo, vid card, processor etc. and kill itself.
Moral of the story---buy a high quality PSU.
I would also stay away from recert cards. if they have a full warranty, fine, but you don't want a dead card 3 months from now.
I recommend this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130339
same as the tiger direct one...except I personally believe newegg is a better company to deal with
