  1. Not a fan of the Rocketfish (BestBuy house brand).
    The fact that the PSU is being "Sold by Liquidation Team" is another red flag to me.
    And that it might be a Huntkey built PSU is also of real concern.

    i figured it was a bad brand. what about OCZ?

  3. I think it's a good option if it's from the same platform as the 600W model
    Keep in mind that the PSUs Davcon listed for you are also good choices too.

  4. Hi :)

    No..its NOT a good cpu...

    All the best Brett :)
  5. You are right to look for a quality psu.

    My short list of quality brands would include Seasonic, PC P&C, Antec, XFX, and Corsair.
    You can safely buy from any of them.

    I think your gpu only needs one 6 pin power connector and 24a.

    For $25 after rebate, the Corsair CX430 is a great deal. I have used them before, and they work well.

    A good stronger unit would be the Antec earthwatts green 500w unit at $50 after rebate:
