PSU choice.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need a cheap, reliable PSU for my linux box. Anybody have experience with this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159040

Looks to be what I need, and the reviews on the egg look to be pretty good all the way around, but I'm not in the habit of solely trusting anonymous reviews from newegg when I choose hardware.

Anyone have any other suggestions in the same price range and power capability, mostly in the 12v rail department.

My other thought is getting this one from PC Power & Cooling. http://www.pcpower.com/products/view...view=techspecs

It's a bit more expensive, and the total wattage rating is lower, but I believe that using PCP&C's rating system, and noting that the 12v rail is 21amps, the actual output of this one would be comparable or equal to the 500w Coolmax.

Thoughts????

That should be the right choice.

Although I highly recommend the Thermaltake TR2 for $39.99 ($29.99 AMIR). That TT PSU powered my 650 @ 4.0ghz, 1GB DDR400, 4xHDDs, 6600GT, 2xOptical, floppy drive and 2x120mm fans.

Either of the ones you have listed look pretty good. I would go with the coolmax, if the PCP&C is cheaper it'd be a tough decision between the two.

Holy hell you put a lot on a TR2!
