Anyone see a good PSU and having best value right now?

My PSU just dead today and I need to change a new one. 350-500w will be good enough.

Is this the best deal around right now?

Forton makes good stuff so i would say thats a good pick.

The Forton is way better because it has more AMPs on the +12v rail. I have never used thermaltake products so i really can't give an objective view. but spec wise the forton is way better.

I checked on both the +12volt rails and they are both 18amps.

I plan to upgrade my graphic card to ATI X1950pro which the website says it need 30amp assuming its running at 100%

Both the PSU I mentioned therefore can't use the X1950pro? Am I missing something?

The thing that you're missing is that the Fortron has 2 rails instead of one. Now i'm pretty sure that the Fortron can run a x1950pro but idk if others agree

I have 1 more question.

Most of the motherboard is using 24pin power pin.

Should I worry about the FSP having only 20pin?

Which type of motherboard doesn't run by using 20pin only power supply?

I know right now my ECS motherboard have 24pin power pin but it is working with the 20pin power supply.
