I've been wanting to get a more powerful psu in the 350-400w range but i'm not sure how much to spend. I'm not too crazy about getting the best, so would a run-of-the-mill psu that's fairly decent and reliable be just as good. I don't think i'm gonna go too crazy on it, just for video card purposes.

Dear Chan,

I agree with Grin, Antec makes some great power supplies. I have two of them.

I would find the Antec you want and shop around.

Try Pricewatch.com but be careful of what you are getting.

Companies I trust are Newegg.com, ZipZoomFly.com, and Chiefvalue.com.

I would go to pricewatch and enter the Antec information. See if you can get a better deal, sometimes Newegg gives free shipping with mention of Pricewatch (Rare).

ZipZoomFly has free 2 day Fedex supersaver.

Remember to compare prices with shipping, sometimes Newegg beats everyone with shipping.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:

Dear Chan,

I just sold a Cooler Master for around $50 it was 350 watts new. EBay was the vessel.

I would really stick to either Antec or Cooler Master.

If you go too cheap, you could pay a lot more latter.

Check out Pricewatch or EBay.


Let us know,

Enermax also make good PSUs, with manual fan control on them. I have a 350 in my main rig, which works fine.
