2 PSUs If I must, which to pic

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
ok, it's me again, sorry to bug everyone so much with questions, I know almost nothing about power supplies.

So I am going to purchase a good PSU as soon as the money comes

but at the main time, I have these 2 not so good one to choose from

which one would be better for me, as I really don't understand volt, amp, split rail etc etc(even tho I did look it up for a while, but i'm not really getting it)

Link above to my blog, and I have to 2 pictures uploaded. thanks lots,

OCN is great.


EDIT: currently on the DEER one

I can't make any suggestions as I just don't know enough, but if you want to learn more about PSUs, then check this out. I found it on NewEgg back in late February when I was putting together my sig rig:

Power Supply

Click Here for more information on Power Supplies in our Learning Center

The PSU (a.k.a. power supply unit) is virtually the heart of the computer. It is a vitally important part that delivers power to components that comprise the computer system. A high-quality power supply can make the difference between a perfect machine and an unreliable one. Getting to know the importance of the power supply is just the first step, and getting the right PSU for your system means looking beyond just enormous power output.


I found this at the bottom of the Power Supplies page on NewEgg. Once you're done, you can start asking some really good questions about PSUs here on OCN.

Read everything carefully. If you still don't get it after reading it, then take a break and read it again later. Try to read it with the attitude of that you know absolutely nothing, and that this thing will fill you with the knowledge that you want. I only say that because when I first had the problem of "I'm not getting it", I noticed that I was reading it and kinda not letting myself absorb it. I was letting my pride get in the way, which is very easy for me to do.

As far as suggestions go, I just remembered that I can suggest the major brand names to lean toward. These are the ones that were suggested to me over the past month or so. I'm going to list them in basically the same order as I see them on NewEgg.com (which, by the way, seems to be our favorite place to shop, here on OCN)
  • Silverstone
  • Antec (Earthwatts only)
  • Corsair
  • OCZ
  • PC Power & Cooling (many people told me that this is the ONLY company I should look at)
  • SeaSonic (they make the Earthwatts for Antec)
The ones I've seen suggested the most on here are Silverstone, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, and SeaSonic.

As far as my PSU goes, I personally love it because it has modular cabling. I thought that was the coolest thing ever. Not only that, but it was highly recommended by many people.

I think that's all I got.

I hope this helps somehow.

You're very welcome!

NewEgg's Learning Center really teaches the person who doesn't know anything. There are a COUPLE of things here and there where they probably could've explained things a little better, but that's one reason why I've been known to say that NewEgg.com and Overclock.net is a winning combination. Other than that, it's their selection, customer service and prices!! Did I mention that I love NewEgg?

NCIX to me is as good as it gets, but put them next to newegg? still the same, i mean, u guys pay what the number says

example

if HD3850 is 150, u pay 150 + shipping and other stuff,

but there we will be paying 171(if hte price tag says the same of 150) + shipping and other stuff and probably longer wait (carrier companies around here seen very lazy, they take any possible break

It could always be worse. You could be stuck in a third-world country wondering how in the world the carrier is gonna find you.

sorry to give u the truth, 3rd world country have it even cheaper, the real behind places I think they should be call "4th world countries"\\



EDIT: oops talking about carrier, well I'm from taiwan, taiwan is high tech but still consider developing country (non-political talk)
we have crazy ass carrier service, I want to send someone something, u can go to 7-11 and send it in the morning , and the person gets it in the same day afternoon, (that' s how i do yahoo auction back home b4)


EDIT 02 : I really wish someone give me a suggest on the topic, as I worked all night, would like to change it (if i should) b4 i go to bed


EDIT 03 : BTW, Lasagna kicks ass!!!! especially the frozen ones that u shove in the oven
