Isn't it the Aspire X-Alien? I have one in my Aspire X-Superalien case (500w), and it hasn't failed me yet.

They arent super high end like a powerRight or an OCZ, but they are reliable and get the job done, I havent seen one fail yet. (but I have seen the auxillary ATX plug burn out on once, but I rma'd and it never happened again)

Yeah they aren't really top of the line like Antec or OCZ, etc., but I have heard nothing but good reviews and they look pretty cool too.

Dirty canadian is right, you can get those off newegg for like $55 US dollars I think. (just the PSU not the case+PSU)

whats wrong with an OCZ 480w? you could run your system on a 450w PSU, so you dont NEED a 500w PSU, 480w would be fine, especialy from a good manufacturer like OCZ
