Sorry its $100, great PSU though.
I bought my Hyper 580W for 48€, I really don't understand why are they so expensive in the US.

I'd go for the Enermax or the OCZ. OCZs are designed for OCing while the Enermax have a really good reputation as very stable and reliable. If you decide to get an expensive one I'd try the ANTEC PSUs also, they have great 12V output.

I would say PC > Ocz = Seasonic based on waht I've heard (not my own experience).

So for your budget OCZ or Seasonic

I think thay may be worth 80-90€, but not more. I have the non-modular model, which is identical to the modular type, only cheaper. As I said, for over 100$ I'd go for an ANTEC TruePower. Even if it hes a lower wattage they have very good 12V rail amps, and in the end that's what we all need. I have 36A on the 5V rail, but who cares about that? The 12V rail is all that matters.

Modular is where you only plug in the Cables into the PSU that you need.

Hiper does not deliver enough power.. only 30A max load on the 12V rails, even less than the Enermax pink suggested.

I join the GameXStream crowd here.. max load on the 12V rails is 44A (it's identical to the FSP Epsilon, and the FSP website specs it as a max load of 44A)

Another good one is the SilverStone Zeus Series ST56ZF 560W ATX Power Supply with SLi Ready for $169.00 inc GST

I like PSUs with a single, powerful rail, in this case 38A. Should be good enough, and the price is right. It's actually a bargain for $169 Aus. It sells for $137.99 here in the US. I am advising you this one as yuor best value!

CyberDruid runs two motherboards with Pentium D 805's of one single Silverstone (these are the PSU's for his Crunch project; two PSUs powering four rigs in one case - no heavy graphics though.)

Very nice...I like that silverstone. But is modular really that worth it? 560W should be enough I hope...

And I'm a little worried with this...http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/07/...st/page25.html

That's the 65... different PSU.

There is quite a difference between the 56 and the 65. The 56 is a single rail PSU, while the 65 is multiple rails, and indeed had some efficiency issues, along with an odd distribution along the rails.
