and my questions:
-I read somewhere it's better to buy PSU's of the same make as the case to ensure it will fit, but I doubt that (right?). Will this work?
-The two PSU's I'm comparing I noticed under "spec" there is "Modular." What does that mean? (So basically, why the price difference between the two?)
-I am most unsure about the heat sink. Do you think it will fit (in the case) and/or work with this configuration?
Also, I guess, if it all works then are there any cheaper components available with the same performance/quality that you would suggest?
