Always a good thing to check, seeing as you only have 2 slots. m 0 l Related resources $900-ish Budget Gaming PC - Forum Budget $200 Gaming PC Build.

Are corsair PSUs just as good as Antec PSUs? Yep. Corsairs are great psu's...manufactured by Seasonic. The only junk Corsairs are the "Builder Series" which are manufactured by CWT. m 0 l Kamab September 1, 2011 3:18:49 AM Corsair and Antec both make high quality PSUs.
