However, the Antec Basiq power supplies are older models. As the model name implies they are basic, average power supplies similar to OEM psu's. Antec offer some better quality units. Two examples would be the Antec Earthwatts and the Antec TruePower New series which are major improvements over Antec’s older psu’s like the Basiq models. If you can manage it I recommend bumping it up a bit to an Antec Earthwatts or a TruePower New model. m 0 l Related resources Can nvidia 9800gt or HD 4850 work on this psu - Forum Will this PSU work with 2 ATI Radeon™ HD 4850 X2 - Forum Will radeon 4850 work on 500 W psu? - Forum HD 4850 on 400W PSU?? - Forum Can I run a Radeon HD 4850 or 5770 with a 300W PSU? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

And it seems to be a pretty nice PSU if you are on a tight budget: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/792 m 0 l JohnnyLucky a c 248 ) Power supply April 18, 2010 11:13:27 AM jsc - I should not have said the psu old since it is only three years old. Technical reviews at Xbit Labs and Hardocp of the Basiq 500U were not as good as Hardware Secrets. In addition there were some interesting comments in the Jonny Guru forum. The unit does not have multiple +12 volt rails as advertised. The current on the +12 volt rail is low when compared to a high quality 500 watt power supply. User comments seem to indicate a higher than normal rate of doa's and early deaths. Almost everyone agrees the psu fan is very noisy. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
