and my old PSU was a 300W Hardwired Generic.
think all my other parts are intact ? the PSU Died while the computer was on. Later on I tried to turn it back on to see if the PSU still worked ? (Power Green LED went on for about one second, then went off)
hmmmm, i don't think any of us have heard of 'em, which basically means poop, thumbs down, garabage. Trust me, I was stupid, I spent $25 (CAD) on a cheapo 300W PSU, and no more than a week later did I go out and by an Enermax 350W because mine had failed about half a dozen times already... like everyone's sayin, the PSU is often overlooked when its one of the most important parts... i mean think of your comp as a chain... one link breaks and you're f*cked.. there are some cheaper and still good PSUs out there I guess, check-out some TopPower i guess...

Dont worry too much about the others. They are very paranoid about PSU`s. I have had one of that brand and it didnt give any trouble. Plus Australian fair trading laws keep you pretty safe. I know from experiance that except for a few rare cases you wont notice the difference between a generic PSU and an expensive brand name for the avarage user.
