I bought an OCZ power unit and it started up the first time and then wouldn't start right after I restarted my computer. I tried it the next morning and it worked for 1.5 hours and I shut off for 2 hrs and tried to turn back on and nothing. It never started again. I ordered a Antec power supply now. How often do power suppies DOA? What is the best PSU for under $150?

It depends really, you can't say they do it at a certain time. Some do some don't, it comes with the territory of PSU's. Generally some companies seem to have better quality, Corsair for example and Enermax. Probably have the best PSU's out at the moment, but that doesn't mean they don't DOA too.

Here's a good buy.

Seasonic guarantees their units for 5 years, no questions asked
Just save the original box
