Raidmax PSU
 
out of 1-10 (1 being the lowest, 10 being the highest) how is a 500W Raidmax PSU rated?
i think its this one.

i know about the price, and the basiq is a bit more, but i think this comes with a Smilodon case, and need to know if this PSU is good enough (not for the computer in my sig)

EDIT -
Future build

Q6600
XFX 680i LT SLI
8800GT (G92) 512MB
2GB DDR2 XMS2
and the regulars... (ie HDD)

i am thinking of getting this case.

and it comes with a PSU, and if this PSU sucks, then i will get a cheaper case and a better PSU.

oh haha my b dude i get lazy and dont read the whole post. um yeah thats an exceptional PSU, i would rate it like a 6 and the basiq like a 7. anything higher gets way more expensive

Re: Raidmax PSU
 
i was looking how much the case itself cost with the Basiq, it costs about $140 with shipping. and i think i am going to get $145 on paypal from a newegg RMA.
and thats a bit much.
i was thinking of this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146041
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371002
theyre free shipping and totals to $124, so i will get about $20 to spend extra for either an actual DVD drive or a sound card.
any suggestions?
thanks for helping.

Looks good. But, you could go back to the Antec that was posted above, and that would save you another $20.

Don't put a Raidmax in a high quality build like that. Chances are, you'll regret it sometime down the line. Are you really set on that one case?

Re: Raidmax PSU
 
i was thinking of getting the Antec Trio because i am thinking of SLI'ing my 8800GT later this year.

if you were refering me being set on the Smilodon case, then no. i am thinking of getting the NZXT Alpha.
I pretty much want a nice case with a transparent side that has free shipping to save me money.
