How about this one? I'm thinking about getting this one for my own computer.

It has good reviews, is 580 watts, and is VERY cheap for what you get! It seems like a good deal to me.

u shouldnt above all gt cheap psus... they could ruin ur system. besides who would need 580 watts unless ur runnin sli (but then u should be able to afford 50 of those psus) i say stich w/ something smaller and be safe. get a tt silent purepower. it doesnt look as nice but at least ull be safe. im sure u dont want ur stuff to get ruined because of crappy rails.

Hey, well, I've heard that power supply unit is really good. It was from someone around here, I believe. And besides, you think that at least someone would have a bad review for it, but there isn't one. Besides, isn't Powmax a pretty good company? I hear good things...

if u press to see all reviews ull see some stuff. besides i read reviews all over the place for that because i was gonna get it and it said the rails were very unstable... some guy on there said his 5v spiked to 7 for a sec. that would totaly kill ur stuff. btw all u should need is 500w. i dont kno y anyone would ned more cept 4 dual 6800ultras an a ton of fans and all that stuff.
