ok hello everyone, i am planning on getting a new computer+monitor after being stuck with a laptop for 4 years that barely runs explorer
anyways, i will write here the parts , and please write your opinions plus any suggestions or changes you think needs to happen
here it is:
INTEL CORE 2 DUO S775 2.66GHz(E6750) 1333MHz/FSB 4MB - BOX
i have been searching about this monitor for about a half a year now and all i get are awesome thoughts about it..
also there is a thread in whirpool forums 300 pages about this monitor all say its an awesome monitor for its price
anyways, this about closes the budget, i know some of you will say "get a q6600" but here where i live it costs about 100 dollars more and i dont have the budget for that, but from what i heard the e6750 is an awesome processor so i think its cool..
most likely i will buy this computer+monitor at december-january so i hope by then there will be a little price drop that will let me take the q6600..
i live in israel so the prices are a little different, the fsp one here costs around 55 dollars, so iguess i want to pay up to 80, but from what i see i will need to put in 100dollars in order to get the liberty 400 which is very liked herein israel...
DUDE - FSP isn't Bargain Crap. They make very solid PSUs. They do have a range of products - but they are all very good for what they provide. I would tend to suggest something in the 450-500W range just because you look to have the potential of needing more.
I just put the AX400-PN from FSP in my brother in-law's computer. I hate working on his crap - because he can't make a decision on anything, and is resistant to spending any money. I did end up talking him into getting a quality PSU for his rig. This model isn't the top of the line for FSP - but it will work for many years to come (As I doubt if he will ever replace his P4 Prescott).
I have the FX600 - and it is enough for everything I will ever do. It's around $116 on newegg.
As for Corsair, they haven't been making PSUs for very long, but what they do make is also good. a rule of thumb - never spend less than $40 on a PSU, and generally spend more than $50. It doesn't matter what you buy - so long as it will power what you have, and is constructed with quality components. Read the PSU 101 sticky.
It should be fine - I would go for the 450 - but 400W will be enough. If you add a graphics card later on - that needs lots of juice - there are some 5 1/4" drive bay power supplies which you can get to take on that load.
