why buy a 965 when you can buy a 955 and change the multiplier to get the exact same thing for less?
Why buy an 8xx series motherboard that cant take the next generation bulldozer processors?
why buy an x6 for gaming when we already know they dont perform better than an x4 ?
Hehe i have a couple people in mind, but my uncle works for a hardware company and he said that it is pretty good. I know it works because he did a test with it with a paperclip inside the connecter thingy and it turned on.
If you look at the back theres a switch to change from 240 volt to 110 volt . Thats a sure sign it doesnt have an electronic voltage controller . It will be inefficient , run hotter , and is probably rates for that wattage at PEAK , which means it can only do it for really short periods .
Reputable brands can run 24/7 at their wattage rating and make much more stable voltages
Toms did an article on cheap psu's a while back . Sometimes 450 watt units were frying themselves under a 250 watt load . The guy that put the sticker on the back was a thief
The Antec 430 watt in the 300 case unit is a quality . It will be able to run that system , even with the 6850 graphics card
Antec Basiq BP430 430W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
so they normally sell the psu for $50 all by its self .
Notice it doesnt have that little red switch to change the voltage on the back
