with your system that should be fine.

get more opinions before you buy though. i wouldent go to such cheap prices but if its what you can afford its what you can afford.

I don't trust any PSU that cheap, anything from a generic brand like that is liable to have horribly misquoted its ratings, meaning in real conditions it won't make nearly that many Amps or Watts. Get yourself a nice Thermaltake like this:

Agreed. This seems to be "the" budget PSU lately.

Yeah, actually the Sunbeam is probably better since it's so cheap BUT it has proven its worth time and time again, after that I'd say the Thermaltake I linked to is second best.

Edit: lenzo, not everyone has $200 to spend on a killer PSU, he's looking at $20 PSUs and if you know where to look, there is quality to be found, that Sunbeam is more than good enough for his system and is a very reliable PSU.

Try this PSU:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...8919&CatId=331

I've been using it with no problems so far, with 4 hard drives and DVD-RW drive, with voltages varreing by only .03 on the 12v rail.

PS: sorry it's tigerdirect they arn't the best but newegg don't have it

Agreed, but as a youngster I always thought that inexpensive would carry me through, but I've learned the long hard way, that I should have known i'd be let down when sacrificing quality. Bargains can be found, and he's relying on help here.
