Hello guys,

Just recently, my current PSU fan stopped working. I'm in the market looking for a new PSU because I can't keep going without the fan working. I'm no expert so I need help buying a replacement PSU.

My Computer consist of the following:

Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q6600
• 2.40 GHz, 2x4MB L2 Cache, 1066 MHz Front Side Bus

GeForce GTS 250
•1GB 256-bit GDDR3

3072MB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM memory
• (2x1024MB 2x512MB)

HDD 640 GB (2 x 320 GB)
•7200 rpm

Not sure if it matters but I also have 2 PCI Case Coolers that use one 4 pin connector each.
If any more information is needed regarding my PC, let me know.
Thanks in advance! :)

Add XFX to the "get-from list" too :D  They make some good quality PSU's. OCZ also come recommended.

Yeah few things to consider really:
Wattage needed
Price Range
Single or Multi Rails
Modular/Non-modular
Cable length (if you have a full tower case)

Wattage needed? Enough to run all my specs, as I listed in the first post

Price Range? $60-80?

Single or Multi-Rails? I think I'll only need 1 for my graphics card.

Modular/Non Modular? I prefer modular. I have a medium-small case and I don't want all the unused cables laying around. But if theres a nice deal for a non modular, I'll take it.

Cable length? I have a stock HP case. ^
