That is a VERY good PSU for the price.
I got to say that I own a 350W forton, Dual Rail and its 20/24pin! Stable and never craped out on me yet!

So, for a quality one, it seems that I have no choice other then a $50.00+ one? Because, this has to last a good while.

Sorry, ive never really looked at a PSU. I guess I should learn more about them eh? Comes in handy at times

You really shouldn't cheap out on your PSU. Just think: if you buy a cheap one now, it will probably work from a week to a month, then die on you. Then you'll have to buy another PSU, and you'll opt for a more expensive one so that one doesn't die on you either. So, if you get a more expensive one now, you'll just end up saving money anyway.

i would go the extra mile and get a higher end $50+ psu.
just think.. 70$ to ensure the survival of your comp
or 20$ just to see your computer blow up in 6 months and spending another 1000$ on your rig

I agree. FSP Group (Fortron Source) make the best PSU's for the money. Their products are consistent, reliable, cheap and worth every penny.

I only like Enermax's liberty line, as it is the best (IMO) modular psu you can get. All their other stuff is crap.
