Thread Starter 
Hi guys,i have a 550W psu which cost me only 45$,i know its a low quality one as known brands' 480-550W psus start from 80$ atleast.I'was just wondering if this could handle p4 630@4ghz with mushkin extreme ddr2 667mhz memories with a overclocked 6800GS? Here are the values on it +3.3V 32A +5V 40A +12V 24A if it helps.

The biggest problem with a low quality power supply is that when it fails, it usually takes some parts with it. When you can, I'd buy a better PSU. Think of it as buying insurance, that psu might end up costing you a lot more money than buying a good one would.
