I'm planning on upgrading my system and I'm going from a p4 to a amd64 with PCI-E video card.

I'm looking for a psu that is pci-e ready, from 550-600 watt, and would like to have a smart cable design.

I would like to get this before i upgrade because my current psu is having voltage problems and is causing graphical glitches when i play games. so it will need to be able to run with my current set up. i don't think it will matter but i don't know too much about psu and with the new pci-e i don't know what new hookup it uses. so i have a few questions.

I've been to newegg, compusa, and various other places and haven't found exactly what im looking for. i did however find a 500w that thermaltake was selling but they do not offer it with 550 or 600w as of yet.

so my first question i guess would be. do any of you know of a psu that has what I'm looking for? (pci-e ready, capable of handling 2 pci-e nvidia graphic cards, 550-600watt, with a good smart cable design)

will i be able to use the new psu with my current setup? basicly the graphic cards (P4 3.06 533 fsb, ati x800 pro 256, 1gig (2x512) ddr ram, 2 hard drives, 1 CD burner, 1 DVD burner, sb audigy sound card) to (amd64 4000, nvidia 6800 512, everything else pretty much the same only i will get another gig of ram, possibly with the psu.

this link will take you to thermaltake psu and give you an idea on what I'm looking for. i like the multi connectors it looks like it has enough to cover just about anything Click here

thanks in advance for you time.

Dear DEf,

I like the Thermalright you are thinking about. Comes with some cool added ware too.

Here is its competition

The Antec does not say what comes with it. I trust Antec and Thermalright.

Tough choice.

Let us know,

you may want to take a look at this one:


i have heard many good things about this company. their psu's are a little expensive but from what i've read of their reliablity and performance, it's probably worth the extra cash...also got everything sleeved up real nice instead of seeing ugly exposed wires that go everywhere in the case like weeds...
