    Why update 2009 hdd charts? Aren't they still making HDDs in 2011?
    Or is it just a really bad title?

    Toms, I would really like you to review some low end PSU's just to show people why you shouldnt buy cheap crap.

    Agreed. This is one of the biggest mistakes people make when buying computers. Everyone I build systems for gawk at the price of the power supply, but I keep telling them (tongue-in-cheek of course) that a $30 power supply may have a great price tag, it also has great features like keeping you on the cutting edge of hardware because you are constantly forced to upgrade due to failed components.

    I then tell them (more seriously this time) that no one should ever spend less than $70 on a power supply, because most of the one's (I know there are a few exceptions) priced below that have crappy components that will fry their more expensive hardware.

    A site like this doing some much needed myth-busting would be wonderful.
