I'm looking to build a PC and I dont know too much about PSUs. I have a thread on the New Build forum, but thought this would be better since it's a specific question. From Newegg reviews it seems like a good PSU, but I have never heard of Directron or know how well recertified PSUs perform. If you think I should go with something else, can you recommend something that can be used with a SLI setup and it <$50?
that's definitely a good price even for a recertified psu.
Directron has no problem with itself, however if you are buying a recertified product, you'll always be taking a higher risk.
I would personally go with it, the price is simply irresistible.
what do you feel like? do you feel like going safe or risking? if you wanna go safe you might as well just buy a new PSU, if not why don't just pay as little as possible. Don't do the testing, go with it and see what happens.
Me, Tomshardware and Best of media claim no responsibility if you receive a faulty PSU. XD
