Ultra and Xenon are two of the worst psu's on the planet. The power supply is the most important part of the system. Yet you trust your components to junk. The worst power supply in the planet is running the computer fine now with an uninstall and reinstall of catalyst 10.4 m 0 l wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card May 18, 2010 2:15:42 PM Agree with zipzoom, PSU is the most important thing in your computer...
