Many seems to think this system is a system you can use to find quality but its more marketing hype

basically this can mean that a Bronze, but solid 500wPSU can be better than a Gold, but Cheap 500w PSU?

Yes take the Raidmax AE for once its sold as a Gold unit but in the real world its a mediocre unit that can just barely do Bronze

It works the other way too the NZXT HALE 90 V1 and the Cooler Master V and VS are both underrated they can do higher then 80 plus Gold they are just rated Gold

Short version is you cant use 80 plus for much and you sould never base your buy only on 80 plus

Its all about how its made and how its ripple and voltage regulation is

Edit its not even unheard of to find PSU´s with fake 80 plus

According to you, since ratings aren't of too much use, what should be the price of a 450w-500w PSU? above $50?

edit: reviews are useful too

This and i have said this at least 2 times now

Its a modified Seasonic S12II

How much is a Seasonic G or a Rosewill Capstone compared?

Cant recall prices on every PSU in every area of the world

Edit when the Cooler Master V450S/550S shows up it will replace the Capstone and G as the best bang for buck you can get

Yes, I totally agree with Shilka on this, buy a PSU that will last. If you get a good one, you shouldn't have to replace it for like 2 or 3 builds. Also your computer not catching on fire or get a power surge from the psu is a good thing.

The thing to keep in mind is he is limited to what they have at his local corner computer store. I'm tempted to ask for a list of their products so we know what we have to pick from.

Secondly, can anyone tell me some other graphic cards from nvidia?
The gtx 650 looks really bad compared to the 660. what are the 8000, 9000 series? are they good? are they new?

It matters A LOT! Let's say you have an aluminum frame case and then you have your standard steel case, aluminum is going to release heat a lot faster then steel will. Companies have different markets they tend to aim at.

Corsair = More professional, not so alien ship looking, generally aluminum mix, water cooling friendly.
CoolerMaster = LOTS OF AIR FLOW and generally steel, they also like the 200mm fans.
NZXT = Like to do there own thing, weird fan sizes (200mm fans not really 200mm, a little off), lots of expansion space.
CaseLab = Experimental, massive, tons of room for growth.
Thermaltake = Generic cases, not to much, weird designs.

Those are the ones I came up with off the top of my head... Feel free to add to this if you see anything that needs to be edited.
