So I was looking at getting a new PSU since my old one which was extremely cheap(it came free with a case that was $24 so yea) took a dive.
I am not looking to spend a lot on one since I don't have much to spend.
So this caught my eye,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I know cooler master makes some pretty good HSF's and case fans but I was not sure about their PSU's.

My specs are as follows
Athlon II X2 245 @ 3.6GHz
MSI 760GM-E51(FX)
Radeon HD 5750
I have 2 laptop hard drives and one 3.5" IDE drive :lol: 
Most calculators put me at about 310W at 100% load but those are not very reliable numbers.

Would this be a safe buy or a waste if money?
If it is a waste then what would be a better buy?
Thanks in advance.

Could you find something by them for around that price?

Not ALL Cooler Master psu's are bad, only most of them. At that price though, I can assure you that is a bad one, please look elsewhere.

I'm really sorry, but it's basically impossible to get anything decent at that
price. Especially from Cooler Master.

the 12v rails seem a bit lacking but don't you add them together for the full rail cap?

The Antec is the best out of the 3 you looked at. Here's a good list to refer to when looking at power supplies.

Thank you VERY much for that link.
That is the best and easiest guide type thing I have seen for power supplies.
If there isn't anything like that here there should be one made immediately for all the newbies to see.
