If I recall, it is not a good PSU. I believe it starts getting bad at around 250w load. I can't find the review of it though. There was one where it was tested against a few other lower end PSUs.
Once again...

EPS12v is a rectangular 8 pin power to MB connector. Some MBs only need the 4 pin square and some need the EPS.

Oh, well that's not that big of a deal then is it? Don't they make connectors for that so that it's compatible either way?

Anyways, it's official... I bought the first part of my new rig.

Ultra XVS 600w MODULAR Power Supply from ZipZoomFly for 64$ Shipped.

I'm stoked.
And yeah, 5cheese... I've been eye-ing that power supply for awhile now, but today I was checking out all of my options and it was really the only way to go. There's also a place called axiontech that had a similar price on that PSU, maybe a dollar cheaper - But I've heard more about zipzoomfly, so I just went with it. Plus they have some program where you earn points for buying stuff. Not sure how it works, but whatever!

Thanks for all the help guys.

Oh, wow. lol I've been wondering what that 4-pin was for. It's the CPU power cable that I would've used had my mobo not taken the 8-pin! I love learning stuff!

Thanks 5cheese, it seems like a real good deal.
Should be a nice starting point for my new rig.

That's exactly what I was thinking!! Perfect starting PSU for your rig! And with 600w, that should hopefully have been designed well enough to last you long enough so you can save up for one of those really nice PSUs, such as the Corsair HX620W, or the HX520W (which at 520W, it has enough on the rails to power your rig just fine).

But those aren't necessarily the best. The HX520W is the only one I've had real experience with. And I must say, I'm very happy I bought it. Plus, it looks kinda neat. But it costs like $125 at NewEgg. I don't know how I got so lucky, but less than 2 months ago, I bought mine for just a hair under $100.
