The other day my PSU went out. Ive been shopping around for a new one and so far this is what I have come up with. This http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite... and this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... . My current rig is pretty basic, though I'm planing on building a new one in the future. I have a nvidia 8800gts 512, and AMD 4200+, 4 gigs of OZC memory, and your basic HDD and DVD burner/player. My questions are is there anyone here that has experience with these power supplies or would recommend them. Or maybe something else thats in this price range. I want to get a good one thats going to last me.
Thanks for your reply's. I'm not really panning on upgrading this computer anymore at this point. I think im gonna go with the ultra or the antec. My case doesnt have holes in the top for a top fan. Is this something I should think about? Could I just put holes in the top? Whats your recommendations?
The fan points into the main part of the case, not towards the top or towards the bottom specifically, but into the main area of the case, the mounting screws on the back orient it that way, so you dont need to worry about having holes in the top for the fan, because it will be pointing down.
I would go for the Antec Neo, it will have plenty of power for any future upgrades too, that ultra unit only has 30A on its 12V rail so its a bit closer to being a 400W unit than a 550W unit.
