need a new power supply

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new power supply, that is preferably modular. my system specs are below but i will also be running a a 400 gig samsung 16mb hd shortly and 5 or 6 80mm case fans. My price range is no more than $110 usd. So far I'm looking at the Hiper Type-R 580W and the ULTRA 550W X2. I need a stable psu that will be able to run 24/7 most weeks, some small ocing will be done (right now i do not think my true blue 480 can handle ocing withe the x1950xt). If i do not need a new psu, which i think i will with the new hd coming, please tell me because i don't want to wast money. Any advice is appreciated. thanks,

Look no further:

Corsair HX520W

Modular, built by SeaSonic(that means real good) and has 40A on one big ol' honkin' 12v rail.

Definitely go for the Hiper. I love mine, it is silent, powerful, and stylish. I also have been using the plastic case it comes in quite extensively as a toolbox. Don't worry about the cabling, it is top of the line, and it is quite possible (and easy actually) to install new cabling without removing the PSU from the case
