  2. ok thx
  3. If you are in the U. S. and can mail order, the 500 watt Antec Basic costs about the same as the CM and it is a much better PSU:
    Antec 500 watt BASIQ

  4. i though that antec basiq psus were crap....i guess not LOL
  5. What is budget for a new PSU. I won't recommend the Antec BP, myself. The Thermaltake PSU is a decent one. I prefer it over the Cooler Master.

    The 500 watt Basiq is a pretty nice PSU after its recent redesign. I wouldn't buy any of the other Basiq's though.
