Hey gang,

Looking for a recommendation for a new power supply. This is for a dual-boot Windows Server 2008/Windows XP-64 system that had been running fine up until today. I know it's the power supply that's gone bad as I went through the "Won't Boot" sticky and nothing stuck out as an issue. Only when I swapped power supplies from another system did it boot. With the alternate power supply installed, the system is currently at the Windows 2008 Server Login screen.

The dead power supply is an Antec SmartPower 2.0 500 watt modular. I'm looking for a replacement. I'm leaning towards the Corsair 650 CMPSU650TX, but wanted to get your opinion.

Again, this system is primarily a test server, running Server 2008 w/ Hyper-V. Occasionally, it serves as my gaming system. System Specs are below, in my signature.

TIA

Not so much looking for power as I am stability/reliability. If my 500watt Antec ran it without issue (until dying), I pretty much assumed the Corsair 650watt would more than cover it (and maybe some additional hard drives).
