Try not to buy a psu with small cooler in the back ...too much noise .the ones with the big cooler underneath r so much better


what? every hear of the PC Power & Cooling silencer series? I have one, it makes less noise then my corsair PSU. the silencers all have a small fan in the back...

you probably went to a better quality PSU, that has more to do with noise then fan size.

on sale today OCZ 500w modstream and modular ($67 plus $6.50 instant rebate plus $20 mail in rebate)

FYI, that antec 430w will run circles around most 500w you can get including the rosewills.

430w is kinda low cuz maybe in future will go sli.
And that Antec has only 1x PCIe the single GTX 460 needs 2.

Another thing that Antec 430 has 2 lines with only 17A and 16A wth lol thats too low. 360w on (+12)? and 130 on (+5v, +3.3v?)

The rosewill has 50A on +12v and 600w on (+12v), 140w on (+5v, +3.3v)

But i understand its no Antec or seasonc..corsair but if rosewill has that much head room and i wont even use maybe 60% and its decent price, it should run ok?

Kinda like buying Ford Mondeo over the Audi A4? with ford mondeo you can get a younger and newer for almost same money you could buy older audi?
And if you run Ford Mondeo lets say only at 50KM/h should break less ofcorse you got to be carefull as whell not run it like mad man? :o 

No offence to Ford or Audi lol x-x

Maybe i just got this all wrong D:

the antec 430w has one 12v rail (just about every PSU under 1000w has just one) and its been split twice, that's all. you won't find a PSU under $60 that can handle the GTX 460 in SLI. you can get some crap brand that states 650w+, then you can watch it spark up and take out your mobo. the rosewill is fine and will power a single GTX 460 set up
