OCZ Fatal1ty - Ripped Off?

I bought an OCZ Fatal1ty 550w a few days ago and I feel a bit ripped off; 550w for $70 isn't a lot of power. I plan on upgrading my GTS 450 to a 560ti in the future. If I can return it, what power supply should I get to support that, in that price range?

    Yea.

    The Fatal1ty line is a mid range lineup but marketed as a higher end offering...

    75$ after MIR.

    Bronze certified.

    Thanks for the info! Should I wait until I return the OCZ or just buy it now?
  3. Return first, buy second.
  4. Thanks for the answers. While you're here, can anyone help me choose a motherboard?

  5. No.

    Seriously though, start a new thread :)

    This will keep confusion to a minnimum since people see the headline first.
  6. The two top PSU's are probably Seasonic and Corsair. Make sure it's at least 80+ bronze certified but if you want to go with the best (and I would) get a PSU that is 80+ gold certified.

  8. What about http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341018
    $60 after rebate, modular, 80plus, 700w
  9. I got it for $60 before rebates and $35 after. I have to say. It's quite a steal at this price and it's a top tier PSU. It'll support a GTX 560 Ti OC with a i5 2500k OC no problem. No need to get a new PSU.
