Well if you are gonna use this PSU on a secondary rig and feel comfortable with it, then go for it. But as posted above, I wouldnt put that into a high end system.

Question though: Why are you replacing your current Enermax PSU?

Its not really a question of scam or no scam. Bullzi needs to know if the psu would be sufficient as stated and not some piece of crap.

Meh. . .

If you want cheap and reliable here's an Antec Basiq BP500UB 500W for $34.99 that will more than handle your secondary rig.

because its only 500Watt. i dont plan on getting a new one instantly, but im currently looking because if i want dual 4870's then i need at least a solid 600-650.
