my ultra 750w power supply just died. i have had 3 in the past 4 years. now i don't know what is causing them to die. my system specs are:

3 sata hard drives
2 dvd burners
1 mia echo pci audio card
1 asus 450 nvidia card
amd phenom quad core 2.2ghz with foxconn motherboard
8gb ddr2 ram

i usually unplug my surge protector when i leave. wonder if doing this every day could cause problems with the power supply?

i do this as a safety measure. the ultra power supply that died out puts 45 amps on 1 12v rail.

i am looking at getting this one to replace it...

this is the one i had that just died.

any all help with this is greatly appreciated.

i do game some. burnout paradise, batman arkham aslyum and need for speed hot pursuit II, fifa 2010. i also do a lot of video editing. some hd some not.

i really could use some help with this as i am tired of replacing the power supply.

You need to buy a good power supply. Ultra is a crap brand. Spend a few dollars more and get the corsair Enthusiast series TX-650. It'll cost around 80, but it's so worth it.
