This is the PSU I use. Powers the below spec's without any issues. All the rails run right within spec's. Its slightly over your price tag but with the rebate its $79.99

I don't know what you mean. You'll have to plug connectors into the motherboard, hard drives, optical drives, and possibly video cards or fans.

EDIT - The Antec is a much better power supply than that one Mattie. That one only has 34A total on the +12V rails. Not to mention 70% efficiency isn't exactly stellar.

Well I'm just saying for Saturnv, the Antec is a much better choice.

I guess with the 85% efficiency it probally is a better choice for him.

If newegg pricematches, this should be a bit cheaper.

After much research, it's the PSU i chose for my new rig.

WTF why are people suggesting crappy raidmax PSU's? Their engineers are on crack.

Do you know what an oscilloscope is?
it measures frequency or something of that matter but as soon as freestyler posted the antec i immediately posted that the antec was better. i just didnt know they were that cheap

and i dont know what an oscilloscope does on a psu other than mearsure its refresh rate which is an industry standard 60Hz is it not?
