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) :o 
Intel mobo
ATI x1900xtx :lol: 
2gb ddr2 (not sure wich brand and speed yet)
lian li case

any thoughts would be appreciated

I would stay away from a mostly unknown power supply. Let someone else figure out if it sucks or not.

The price seems average. The PS specs look fine. Thus, the price is not "too good" to be true.

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?

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.
