I am looking at the following power supply:

Not sure if it is a good company or not. It is getting good reviews via customers there. 3 year warranty seems to say to me that the manufacturer feels confident in their product. Anyone have any additional comments?

More about : diablotek yeah nay

It is a real basic system, really doesn't need over a 300 W psu. It is just an AMD 95w processor, micro atx mobo, 4 gb of ram, a 320 gig HD and a DVD drive. 2 fans in the case I have picked.

The Corsair CX430 is a far better psu and not moch more money with mir. Get the Corsair, you be much happier on the long run. Chech RealHardTechx.com for psu review database.

Rolli59 is correct, stay away from Diablotek. Also the 430CX is a very good recommendation as it can be hard to find quality power supplies under 400 watts and the 430CX is generally priced just as low as the few sub 400w quality models that exist.

430CX $24.99 after rebate with free shipping.

Antec Basic VP 350 $23.17. Not sure about shipping since it's on backorder.

Probably should have also added I'm not building right away, so I think I'll look for that Antec 350 to come back in stock. Build won't be done until January, was just killing time picking out components.

Diablotek is at the super cheap super low end of the PSU spectrum.

It seems to be made by Dongguan Golden Tiger Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., one of those unknown random Chinese OEM's.
