Tags: Power Supplies Components Product Last response: August 18, 2006 8:21 PM in Components Share FuriousGeorge August 18, 2006 12:14:36 AM Building a new rig, and im looking for the best bang for the buck on a power supply. I found this on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817154023 It seems to be a new product as i cant seem to find reviews about it anywhere. new rig will consist of: E6300 (OC) Intel mobo ATI x1900xtx 2gb ddr2 (not sure wich brand and speed yet) lian li case any thoughts would be appreciated More about : psu price good true chadder August 18, 2006 12:22:35 AM I would stay away from a mostly unknown power supply. Let someone else figure out if it sucks or not. waylander August 18, 2006 12:22:58 AM Never heard of it.... I suggest you move up to this Antec Neo 500w, you don't need 600w, I seriously doubt you even need 400w but 500w will give you a nice cushion. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103940 It costs more but do you really want to put a 600w, $60 psu in your $1000 computer?

Thus, the price is not "too good" to be true. notquitehere188 August 18, 2006 12:45:07 AM yes, yes it is just the lack of anything similar to thisQuote:and tighter ±3% regulation for improved system stability. which was in the antec specs, i wouldnt go for it pengwin August 18, 2006 3:02:44 AM Quote:The price seems average.

FuriousGeorge August 18, 2006 7:25:52 PM The power supply is nvidia sli certified does that really tell me anything about its quality? or does nvidia pass those things out like candy? Mondoman August 18, 2006 7:48:29 PM Am I missing something here? Why the interest in an average-looking PS at an average price from an unknown company, if you are looking for "the best bang for the buck"? PS - Yes, nVidia passes them out like candy. They just require some minimum specs, including dual +12V rails, I think. FuriousGeorge August 18, 2006 8:21:49 PM Thanks for you reply....Guess ill have to save up a little more and go for an Antec.
