Friend needs a 500watt PSU. Brand recommendations Please.
Nov 11, 2013, 5:09 PM
A friend of mine needs a 500 watt PSU for an old system of mine I sold him (I kept my old PSU). What he needs a recommendations for the brand PSU to get.
I know SeaSonic (the one I have) and Rosewill are both good brands, but I would like to give him a longer list so he has a variety to choose from.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX all make quality units. Rosewill is more hit and miss (some of their models are good, others not so good).
