Don't know if this is off-topic or not...

Been looking at this Power Supply:

Thoughts?

Not bad. Well over $100.00, though. Wanna save ~50 bucks?

I believe this this would be your best deal. It's top-rated, and can run two of those Quadro FX 3800s in SLI if you want to get a second one in the future. At 50 amps, the +12v rail amperage is the same as that Cooler Master, and I'm willing to bet that the build is just as good and probably better. It has a 5-year warranty, and Corsair rebates are reliable. You're not going to do any better for $70.00.

That rebate ends tonight, so you'll have to buy it now, but it's a great buy and it certainly has all of the power that you'll need.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Hm, can't buy tonight, but how about the 600W version?

About the same price as the one you linked.

The one I linked to is $70.00 after rebate. Are you sure you can't buy it tonight? It's a hella good deal.

Also: pay more attention to the +12v amperage than the total wattage. The 620W Corsair is 50 amps, like the 700W Cooler Master. That 600W Cooler Master only has 40 amps.

Ok, got these from recommendation:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...C2D-_-17139005

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139002

Which one between the three?

Definitely the first one. All of the power you'll need (enough to run 2 of those Quadro FX 3800s if you ever want to get a second one) and that price is unbeatable even with CA sales tax. Don't forget to go to Newegg through Live.com's cashback program to get an extra $2.50 off.
