My question is whether or not ULTRA makes a good power supply or not? A week ago, I could be playing AOE2 and alt tab out easily and it would run fine. Yesterday, I wold alt tab out and my computer would completely lock up and freeze. I waited for 5 minutes and ended up hard booting it. The only programs I had running in the background were game ranger and Utorrent, and I dont think that should my my computer lock up. Any comments?
Actually hardwaresecrets and several other highly reputable PSU evaluators give the Ultra units very high marks-pretty strange for a comp-usa house brand.
Can't really find anything positive to say about a refurb harddrive though.
Since I've never been able to get away form AOE myself I can tell you that I'm running it hacked (no cd installed) and it will periodically hang on me, once a month and usually right after a microsoft first tuesday update session.
