  1. They are cheap for a reason. The 500watt rating is MAX output. Good for 17ms. If you break it down it has 410 watts. 180 of those on the 3.3 and 5 volt lines. so that leaves 200watt on the 12 volt lines.
    Not enough for a P4 system and a 6800gt or ultra. Then you add HD ,Optical drives fans etc.........
    Trouble
    They LOOK good but looks arent everything.

    I aint signing nothing!!!
  2. All true, but it is still a great price for a good, mid-grade PSU that will support most modern systems. Would I recommend it for a high-end system - no. For a high-end system I would be more likely to suggest one of these:
    <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?description=17-104-934&depa=0" target="_new">Fortron Blue Storm 500W</A>
    <A HREF="http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=270402" target="_new">Enermax 535W Whisper II model EG565P</A>

  3. I would not use that Ultra PoS.

    And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" Huh
    So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign</pre><p></font color=red>
  4. I've never had trouble with my regular Ultra PS. Granted I'm not running a 6800 or anything but it's running 3 optical drives and 3 hd's.
    3.44/5.03/11.94 on the 3.3/5/12 lines
  5. Cool, didn't mean to bust your chops or anything. Just didn't want people to see it and think it was a real 500watt power supply. :smile:

    I aint signing nothing!!!
  6. That's cool...with its issues a qualified recommendation is the better way to talk about the deal...

  8. The 420W Raidmax included in my case worked very good for my S754 system. When I upgraded to S939 I bought a Fortron 500W bluestorm, but the raidmax went to my sister along with the S754 rig.
    Not only the Irish are lucky also the Mexicans. :smile:

  10. I think I'm pretty lucky, and I'm pretty sure that I'm Mexican.
    Where do your friends live.

  11. Indiana: Muncie, Anderson and Indianapolis. My coach (cedro) asked me to join a league with him that he called the mexican league, out of Indy. I'm one of like 3 white guys amongst all the hispanic's. I've never been called greengo (yea i have no idea how to spell that...) so many times in one place. At least there's a crowd...it's so funny going to those games...there's a fight every match, and it's almost always in the crowd. Oh well. Well, it's good to meet a lucky mexican. =P

    Cedro makes a pretty good living, but i wouldn't call it luck. He works his ass off.

    There's also a large international group that plays across from the hospital near Ball State U in Muncie, that i play with 2-3x a week.

  12. Oh I thought they lived in Mexico.
    It's spelled gringo, but don't worry most of the time is not derogatory, although it could be.
    We're not very politically correct.
    Anybody with dark skin is negro (black), anybody that is asian is chino (chinese), anybody that is american is a gringo, anybody with even slightly blonde hair is a guero.

    BTW Have you eaten real mexican food at your friends house?

  17. He's still got family there, but i'm not sure where exactly. He brought two of his sons with him two years ago, although he's married/remarried since coming to the states.

    Well, i haven't eaten at his place before, but we've gone to what he says is the closest thing to authentic, and we (including 3-4 other guys from the team) ate spicy food till our eyes watered after a match. I eat spicy (in american eyes anyway) food alot (Thai, local mex, and what i make at home).

  19. I have some friends in Indiana, Kokomo to be exact. I used to work for Delco Electronics, and I think they have the headquarters in Kokomo.

    <b><font color=orange>Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes to the bone.<font color=orange></b>
  20. That's interesting...Is that the same Delco, that has changed it's name from Delco Remy to Delphi, and 3-4 other names? I know three or four guys from Delphi/Delco Remy in Anderson (that place closed down i think in the last year). I knew somebody who worked in Kokomo too...i just can't think who. One of my friends' parents from middle school (i lived here for 4 years when i was a kid...then moved away...obviously back now...). Bleh, somebody wants me to actually work here...later
