Thread Starter 
Hey everyone
im buying the following system in a week or so and i'd like to know if the spire rocketeer III 500W will hold my system:

e6300
2GB ram 667
single asus 7900gs
1 250GB HD
1 DVD burner
and 2 120mm case fans

and here are some reviews for the rocketeer II 500W:

It's fine, but whether it will last long is questionable. But the 7900GS isn't a power whore.

i also have the option of buying a libery 400W for another 50$ but my budget is pretty tight so i want to save as much as i can.
im gonna replace my video card in about a year-year and a half so i guess my PSU will also need replacement. if this will hold for 2 years or so ill take it

The liberty 400W might not be able to take that rig comfortably. Go with the 500W, but note that it may explode before 2 years are over.
