Hi again all!

Is this power supply considered good?
It doesn't look like a generic one...

Clearly both are rubbish...

If you point me at a manufacturers website I expect to see rail specs. not pretty pictures...

I hope you aren't planning to power any expensive pieces of equipment... :pt1cable:

P.S. If this is a bait thread - you are good!!

Thank you for your answer!
Is this one a better one:FSP 400-PAF 400W?

And what do you mean by: Bait thread , i'm not familiar with this term...

What kind of system are you going to be putting this PSU into?

Out of the three that you have listed the FSP is probably the best, but I wouldn't consider it a high quality unit. If you're on a budget I would recommend something like this: XCLIO STABLEPOWER 500W

For a little more you can get the very high quality Corsair VX 450w from buy.com. Of course this is assuming these places will deliver to your location.

Corsair, Seasonic or PC Power and Cooling for the best-of-the-best.

Antec, FSP, Silverstone, Enermax for good quality at a good price.

I live in israel so i cant order from the sites you send me...
my future computer system is:
DVRW NEC 7200S X 20 SATA BLACK
320GB 16MB SATA II 7200 AAKS WD
DDR II 2GB 800Mhz CL5 HEATSINK PATRIOT X2
ABIT IP35P INTEL P35 FSB1333 DDR2 1066

CASE X-GAMER
FSP 400-PAF 400W
Gigabyte 8800GTS 512MB

Will the FSP 400-PAF 400W have enough connectors(sata2,motherboard,dvdrw,8800gts) to fit my system?

Thanks again

I don't think that FSP unit has any PCIe connectors for your graphics card, but I am unable to locate that specific model on their website. Could you give us a link?

Hi Uri

Yeh the FSP PSU is an OK brand. That model will (just) cope with your proposed system demands (with no headroom for future changes which require increased power). The PSU has non-active Power Supply correction (so draws more reactive power from the mains then a model with APC) and efficiency is very low at around 70%. Hope that electricity is free in Israel or you only need your PC for 1/2 hour per day!! As the PSU capacitors age the PSU will supply less and less peak wattage. As there is very little safety margin on your system it will eventually blow up (hopefully just the powersupply). Hope it doesn't get to hot over there (>25C) as this will put a lot of strain on a cheap PSU (further lowering the efficiency and peak wattage).

( for others who don't know how to use Google :pt1cable:  )

If you are having problems with buying stuff at the right price/at all in Israel perhaps you should try:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=288&products_id=20607
I buy stuff from them to ship to me in England all the time. Hank ships the stuff using the US Postal Service - so postal charges are very reasonable (cheaper than UK postage sometimes!!) He also takes Paypal (handy for those pesky international credit card checks!!) Maybe he can get the stuff you need out there, to the war zone?? Don't know but it can't hurt to try!!

I'm not on commission BTW :lol:  but everyone is always biaatching about how they can't get such & such a part in Uzbekistan and the like!!
