hay ive been trying to find out what PSU to use on my soon to be built desktop
i was going for all glory
an Intel Quad Core, 8 GB ram, 2 GeForce 8800GTX, a PhysX card, a wireless-G card, 18X DVD Burner, 52X CD Burner, & a Dell Bluetooth Media Hub
the Media Hub is basicly a 3.5" floppy drive and the other media cards + it makes the PC bluetooth able :P
and all of that was on dell.com so i went there and made this monster gameing pc
then i went to the dell chat and asked a rep what PSU this $7 PC would be using
and i was told a 1000W
needless to say i was surprised to see that
so there is some food for thought

With Rudster's experience, I wouldn't pick up a Rosewill right now.

I've seen mixed reviews over them. I guess it's supposed to be hit-or-miss as to weather or not you'll have problems.

You shouldn't trust newegg reviews...anyone can post those.

It's probably not bad for a budget PSU, but you really should spend more than $30 on a PSU. Especially in a higher end build like that.
