Companies do the same crap here, you're better off building your own computer. Companies that build "custom" computers are such rip offs and have no idea what they are doing.

I remember back in '04, I bought a computer for 2000 dollars, roughly 90,000 ruppies, and it was a junker. I ended up having to replace everything except the motherboard and monitor just to play games of that era.

Ahh, back in the days when I had no idea what I was doing.

I pity the customer that tries using a GTX 470 on a 300w PSU.

Actually they're just lying. There is no such thing as a Micro ATX power supply form factor. PS/3, SFX, and TFX are the primary form factors of reduced-size power supplies made to fit smaller chassis.

Going to that site, where the case (they say cabinet) includes a 400W PSU, and they also specify a 300W "micro ATX" PSU, I have to wonder, might they have two PSUs in that box? I can't tell from the one pic...

Hey, they could be adding a 300W drive bay power supply for two PCIe leads, but that still wouldn't be "micro ATX". So, you pretty much can't trust any of the company's description.

Good point. Perhaps they are talking about something like this?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


edit: WTF? Look under "Types" here: http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategor...

Looks as if mATX PSUs do exist?!?!?! o-O
