    I always buy from the Egg. That's just me. When it says 3 day shipping you almost get it next day. They are very good about getting the order out promtly. Anyway. Any of thos PSUs have more then enough power.
    Newegg antec nine hundred price at $140 on frys.com its only $90 same thing with power supply price on newegg.
  2. after lookinig for how to over clock most of people posted as THERMALRIGHT heaksink with 120 fan is it going to fit on my case?
  3. I agree it should fit but also consider that some folks have mentioned that they are not getting the cooling they expected from the ULTRA120 so they basically lap it! Check this link out.

  4. Any of those PSUs should be more than enough for the config you have, and would probably do decently for SLI too, but I'm no expert in the SLI department. I guess that it partly depends on what features you want and how much they are worth to you.

  5. Wow... I had never heard of lapping before. You mean the one where you get paid right? :D
  6. Ah, hum, are you talking about a lap dance, :o :wink:
