Can someone here recommend a good psu that is 600 watts or above and modular for say under $130?

Its for a Quadcore Q9400 in an Antec 900

Edit: I've been looking at the Corsair 620HX but ive noticed that it only has 18 amps on the 12 volt rails. Is this really that bad? I'm not a big gamer so i'd be putting in a HD 4830 or 4850 at the most. I wouldnt be using CrossfireX. But i would like to run some lights and maybe a water cooler in the future.

Thanks

Danklin

Corsair 620HX has 3 +12V rails of 18amps each.
It can share up to 600watts worth of +12V amperage or ~50amps.
Should be safe to plan on ~40amps +12V for your system.



A couple other modular PSUs in the same price range: SeaSonic M12 SS-600HM 600W and SILVERSTONE ST70F 700W

HX620 is actually a single 50A rail, not that it matters.

HX520 would also have no trouble powering this system.

Thanks guys for the replies. I guess i'll be getting the corsair. Just hope i dont get a screaming one like ive heard so much about. Apparently its only happened to a few people.

Thenanimal..Are you sure? All the specs i've read on the HX620 state that it has 3 +12V rails. But either way its good to know that its around 50A.

+1 for the Corsair 620HX, mine has been rock solid for over 2 years now!

I've been using the same Corsair HX620 in my personal builds for the past three years. Never had a problem.
