330W PSU for budget gamer

Active PFC, dual 12V rails with a total 22A, nothing but good reviews (and plenty of them) on newegg. $60.

Look alright? I can't spend much more on a PSU.

Certainly a good deal. I would also look into the Aspire 520. Lots of people here have good experiences with it, same with newegg. Also I believe its only $59.

520W, 35a on 12v+, $49.99 after rebate. Lots of people here have good experiences with them, you may want to consider it.

Will that fit in this case?

It's mATX, but it looks like it would holda full ATX psu.

I am pretty sure that it would hold a ATX PSU, not %100 but pretty sure...Only one way to find out!

Good luck

Your comp will be pretty hard pressed to pump out all that power you need...at least get a 400W PSU...ur graphics card will certainly need it.

Well, thats not true. If you plan on runing more than 2 80mm fans, a cpu fan, a video card fan northbridge fan and cold cathodes, you will need at least 450 watts. And if you plan on OCing, at least 480 watts. Its better to have a PSU with too many watts that you dont use (it will only suck out as much power as it needs, so you will use 300 watts out of 520 if that is how much your computer needs). Also, that PSU will only put out 520 watts for 20 or so seconds. So the PSU will actually only push out 480-500 watts 24/7, not 520. I have it, its a great PSU, extremly solid and stable. This PSU is a steal for $60.

Actually guys, an average system with dual core, 2HDDs, and 2 7800GTXes would be hard pressed to use 300W even. There is no use but then again, I did gt a 600W so more is better. That Seasonic S12 is probably one of the best PSUs out there, even though this one is 330W, they come in 330, 380, 450, 500 and 600 (not sure on the 450).
