The third link... That's the first item I've ever seen on newegg with ZERO 1 and 2 egg reviews.

Don't worry about newegg reviews. Don't make me rant. People say they have "high knowledge" and yet don't know jack squat. Take what people say with a grain of salt unless the review is very in depth.

ended up going for the cooler master silent pro 700w... it was on sale for 89 bucks.

i installed it today and it seems to be good so far. my old power supply when i shook it it seemed to rattle a bit so im glad i replaced it.

Nice, that power supply should last you awhile.

stuff rattling inside is never a good sign, also good power supplies are usually pretty heavy compared to cheaper psus because of the difference in the quality of the internals used...
