this one below currently has free shipping fron newegg, and comes with a bigger power supply, but it has no side vents, I don't know enough to know if that matters,
a few reviewers seem to have trouble with the pc rebooting if they touch the front due a short, but many others rate high and don't have a problem
Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply - Retail `$125
hi I've being do a bit research and got a bad head, i'm looking to buy the new hd 4870 and need a new case and psu, the case i'm after is the coolermster elite 330 and a hiper 580w (HPU-4M580) psu, planning to buy all 3 items from ebuyer.com.
first off, is the manufacture hiper any good for psu and should it be avoided?
if there ok, will it be able to power my whole system, the psu has been certified by ati website and the 4870 needs min of 500w or greater, my system consists of:
1x sata dvd drive
1x sata 320gb HD
micro atx motherboard foxconn (G33M02)
its all came from a dell vostro 200 silm tower which i didn't realize it took stupid half height graphics cards, who on earth has heard of half height cards, stupid dell.
if the hiper 580w is no good or its either not powerful enough which psu would you recommend to power the hd 4870 with the specs of my pc?
i have not got much money, the 4870 is gonna cost me £180 unless you no were to get one cheaper and
cm elite 330=£26
hiper 580w =£39
jesus thats just under £250, so fingers crossed you give me a thumbs up on the 3 items listed, but if i need a better psu so be it al just have to take out another mortgage
