Hi,

Firstly congratulations on your graduation.

Secondly (and far more importantly) put that PSU in the bin where it belongs, Rocketfish PSU's are awful.

Check out this review: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2008/05/13/getting_best_...

Rocketfish only list the dimensions and the 1 year warranty on their website under your PSU's spec's, why haven't they listed the PSU's efficiency ratings, rail design or outputs? (rhetorical question, they obviously haven't listed the important info because the PSU is utter crap).

Anyway, what is your budget for the entire PC?

Thx for the replies , my budget was 500 for everything and i have $475 in everything right now, the rocketfish is the rocketfish rf-500wps2 80+ if its really that bad ill swap it out, looked it up and didnt seem too bad but i know its not great, can anyone recommend a decent one around $50.00 that would be great.
