My cousins computer just recently broke and I think it's just a psu issue so I am trying to find a psu that will support his mobo. He has a XFX MB-N680-ILT9 NVIDIA nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 ATX Motherboard. I have only dealt with about 5 computers my whole life and his computer is the first one I've seen take a 8pin connector instead of a 4pin. I don't know exactly what you call that part of the mobo so I will provide a picture in a link to show you guys what im talking about. Can someone help me find the right power supply that could support his mobo?
also I can't spend more than $60. The cheaper psu the better. And also I found this psu http://www.ivegotjunk.com/servlet/the-218/Rocketfish%E2...
but I do not know if this website is reliable. I have never heard of it before until today so if anyone knows of this website plz give me a review. =] ty.
It's $50 after rebate and is a solid PSU by a good manufacturer. It'll last out for a while and also be powerful enough to support your friend's computer if it gets upgraded in the future.
Note to others reading this: I didn't just go for the most expensive Corsair in his budget, I looked at decent 500W PSUs on Newegg and this looked the best bang for the buck. I am definitely not a Corsair fanboy. Just look at my sigrig; no Corsair to be found.
@Dangerman : No need for all the explaining buddy.. PSU is a critical component of any system and cheaping out on that is definitely not recommended.. Any investment made in getting a quality PSU is always worthwhile..
believe it or not the rocketfish may be the better buy. unless its labeled wrong in the description, that's one of the CWT units best buy cleared out to move to the current CWT made rocketfish 500w. CWT make a lot of corsair units.
Hardware secrets gave it a gold reward.
We must say that we were really impressed by this new Rocketfish power supply. Although it is not really a 550 W unit, it is a decent 500 W power supply and available for a not so bad price (USD 90 on any Best Buy store), which is unique, as Best Buy is certainly not know for having the best prices around. Of course it could cost less, but the advantage of this unit is that you can find it on any Best Buy and may be a good buy when you need a decent power supply over the weekend and/or can't wait for the delivery from your favorite on-line store.
Rocketfish achieved a high 85% efficiency when we pulled up to 300 W, which is more than anyone thinking of buying this unit will pull anyway.
