go with a more mainstream brand such as corsair seasonic antec and xfx you need a good quality power supply as if a surge passes it could fry all of your components.

ah fair enough, was planning on upgrading after christmas, i've got a pretty industrial quality surge protector extension, so i don't think that would be a problem

it is DC electric supplier... you might not want to supply your expensive PC with bad quality DC power. i am afraid it can cause your PC to fail alltogheter sooner or later. following his advice will save your money :D
