Hey guys, recently my computer keeps turning itself off (instantly) and i think its a problem with my power supply. It is an atrix 550w, are atrix really that lame? ive heard bad things about them. Also if i were to get a replacement are PSU's hard/easy to install? thank you :)

I have not used an Atrix PS and don't remember reading any reviews. but if you want a strong 550 watt PS, I'd recommend the new mushkin. It's not really difficult to install a PS but it can be a bit of an involved process. One key is to use finesse rather than force to unplug and replug the cables. On my gaming rig, I have to pull the mobo to get the PS out but it still takes just a few minutes. There are cases that allow for easy access to the PS such as the Lian Li 60B Plus. Sorry, I can't help you with glowing cables...
