Close to limit but you should be ok as it has 26A rail, without oc.

400W is plenty, but not that particular PSU.. the cheapest (recommendable) unit there is this, but seems to be out of stock.... any other shops you could buy from?

Make sure the UPS has line conditioner. It may save you some head aches in the future.

The Litepower product line from TT is not something you want to spend money on really.... so, talk to them and see if they can get you the unit I linked above.

nope,i wont be able to get the unit that yo linked....frown.gif
could you recommend some other really cheap psu's which can run the system properly?i dont need the links from the website that i was trying to buy the psu from..because i pretty much cant use the cheap psu's that they have..frown.gif
give me links from newegg,amazon or the vendor if you can..

EDIT:i can buy the psu from 2 other sites...they dont have extensive info on the products on their website..so i am linking the product ages from the vendors..
http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3605#sp
http://www.corsair.com/builder-series-vs450-450-watt-high-performance-power-supply.html

both of them cost the same..so which one would you recommend..i couldve linked some thermaltake lip's but as you said that these arent good,so i didnt link em





thanks in advance

Neither mate, they're both trashy, just like the old Litepower units available at the shop you previously linked.
