  3. you don't like antec? The only reason is that I am not sure if the xfx psu will fit in my case
  4. antec is great aswell, and just about any psu will fit in any case, but to be safe, what is your case?
  5. Yes , that Antec unit is a great choice like the XFX posted above it's made by SEASONIC.
  6. gateway dx4840-15c. the antec is gonna fit in there perfectly.
  7. all the above psu's will fit in that case.
  8. The Antec is too long for your case get the XFX 550 I posted above above it's OEM sized and will fit.

    5.5" x 5.9" x 3.4"
  9. you serious?
  10. Yes the Antec is too long it's 6.3" and leaves you no room to move and manage your cables.
  11. well, blackbird doesnt lie....
  12. It will be too tight to work with your cables.

    You need the OEM size of the XFX posted above.
  13. haha danbuscus25 I will take your word for it.
    I will go with the xfx psu? is the xfx psu you posted good or the one that blackbird posted?
