DO NOT BUY THE THERMALTAKE TR2 RX 750W...read this to clarify http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/902/ it doesnt perform the rated wattage....also dont go for the ocz 700w either i wouldnt reccomend it either....if theres one thing pc enthusiast know its never go cheap on your psu...go for a 850w or better with 80plus silver or gold...but if your on a budget go get a corsair 850w on newegg for 160...might be pricey but its highly rated product.. hope i helped.

im looking for a rather Cheap PSu yes i know you shouldnt go cheap on your PSu but im not doing anything hardly at all.. the main reason im getting a new one is for the pci-e for my radeon 4850x2...

So give me some ideas on psu's they dont have to be really powerful.. look at my sig and recommened one for me.

Literally dont skimp on your PSU, its just a really bad idea. As a'general' rule, Corsair make the best PSU, Antec are also very good, some of the 'higher' Coolermaster, Sesonic and Be Quiet models are also good, Thermaltake Tough Power are also acceptable. At the price point you are looking at, I would not worry about it being Silver, Bronze will be fine at that power rating .

Im looking for a 700w ish modular power supply now, lets see what I can find

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817703026 is not a good PSU, it claims to be SLI ready, yet it only has 1x6 and 1x6+2 PCIe connectors, it is NOT a SLI certifid PSU

because its XFX (not by any means the best make), the Corsair is the one I would pick for that system, in reality when you / if you upgrade you are likly to replace the PSU with a unit more suitable to your needs at that moment anyway.

I dont think I or anyone else can stress enuff how important a good quality PSU is.

Ask your self this question, you buy a 'cheep' PSU, it goes bang, fare enuff you can claim on its warranty, but only for that part, no manufactur replaces hardware as a result of a poor quality unit, and you will more then likly blow ram/mb/cpu at the same time.

Is it worth the 'chance' of that happening, or would you rather be safe in your thinking that the Corsair unit will basically not fail and not do 100s of $ worth of dmg to other things ?

very true... you see thats why im asking questions... i want a decent PSU for now... i dont have a job atm and i have a lil girl to take care of.. so i am wanting something that will work. the only reason im getting extra money is im selling my old am3 board and dual core cpu and misc computer components to a local shop..
basically when i get a job and have extra money to blow im gonna build a kick a$$ computer. thats why im looking at the top two they have what i need to power my system for the time being im gonna upgrade evetually to something better soooo i want cheap reliable..

i liked the fact that they were $130 and marked down to $90 then a $30-$40 rebate.. lol i don't have lots of money.. im looking to get a new case mines had a hacksaw takin to it just so this gpu will fit its 11.5" long lol.. i have the side off with a 12volt portable fan for a car cig lighter hanging over the CPU with a industrial fan sitting next to the side of the case cause i only have 1 case fan and im interested in OCing eventually.. so im looking to get about 150 from these parts on Wendsday so spending 50 dollars on an original 130 dollar PSU seems good for me that way i have some extra cash to buy an cpu cooler.. and some case fans hell maybe a new case if i find a good deal..
