The second one is specific for Dell computers and you can't use it in normal computers. If you don't have a Dell and you just want to make your own build definitely don't get that one.

The Silencer 610W is a very good PSU and $70 is a crazy low price for it. If it's enough for your setup then go for it.

It is a good deal! The PC P&C 610 is a highly recommended power supply. The unit gets very favorable comments from the regulars who post here. The $99.00 price ($69.00 after mail in rebate) is a special promotion which ends today.

There will be more bargains and specials this week, especially on Black Friday - The day after the Thanksgiving Day holiday in the USA.

hmmm. so the second is for dell only? how'd I miss that?
Also, I thought that sites like newegg do cyber monday, and that only certain things were cheaper, not evrything

I would imagine they'll run specials all weekend, with their big blowout on Monday.

You didn't miss it. The psu case is 10mm shorter to fit in a Dell pc case. The internal parts, connections, and cables are the same as the standard length unit. You can still use it in an atx case without any problems. It will just take up 10mm less space in an atx case.

I've been receiving email notifications from a variety of online pc vendors for pre-Thanksgiving specials this weekend. Waiting for a bargain basement deal on a new video card.

I just meant I like the prices. They are as low as I've ever seen, for some high quality parts.

No idea if they're suitable for your build since you didn't tell us your build. BTW, the link to your wish list won't work. I think it's a private wish list.

oh
lemme see if I can get it public

May want to check demensions, my 610 is 1" longer than my old 350 antec.

PS: Nice and quiet

So, you've got a WD6400AAKS, E7200, HD 4850, Antec 900, 22" monitor, and you're thinking of a 500W PSU. That's powerful enough (minimum recommendations 450W.)

If your MB supports Crossfire, you should get something 550W or larger.

Can you spend $20 more and get the PC Power & Cooling 610W? That's a tier 1 PSU (the smaller PC P&C's are tier 2), supports Crossfire, has a better chance to be reusable with your next PC or video card. At $60 with free shipping it's an incredible price.

No idea. It's normally sold around $90 at Newegg.
November 25, 2008 2:08:55 AM

hmmm....
I dunno if I should rush to buy it, or just wait till I get everything else

Decisions, decisions.... You can always get a decent PSU for $60. OK, it won't be a PC P&C, it will be a StealthXstream or Earthwatts. Those are still fine PSUs. You'll be OK either way. Flip a coin.

I got my 610 on 9-21, no shipping 69 bones after $25 rebate.
Still waiting (infamous OCZ rebate program....) You may want to read
reviews. And if you go with PC Power & Cooling read the rebate requirements carefully.

hmmm, well I think the deal is gone, so can someone find me a relatively good psu that can power my rig and have room for a bit of extra stuff?

+1 for the Corsair TX650 - rock solid and very stable.
November 25, 2008 7:51:43 PM

thanks for the find, but does anyone know how hot it runs?

Relax, man. It's a top quality PSU, it's not even close to the 1200W monsters other people have, and it will be in the Antec 900, one of the best cooled cases ever. You really won't have a problem there.

k
first build so im kinda worried
Also, this seems to have lots of wires/wires are long
any tips on wire management?
November 25, 2008 9:00:17 PM

see, now that makes me wonder
is it normally that price, or is it just a sale?

edit: it is a sale

I hope to get it asap
thanks for the help guys
