And how is that "decent"? I guess our quality standards are a little different

EDIT: yeah, maybe with a combo deal, but that's not what we are talking about here.

i would never put a 80$ p/s in a little dell that i can replace the whole thing for 60$
just doesnt make sense,

i am just offering a certain perspective just like you, nothing wrong or inaccurate with what i said or what you have said.

Only "decent" PSU I've ever gotten for under $50 (not counting rebates) is my Zippy 300W, and that's for old Pentium 3/Athlon XP systems that draw primarily on the +5V.


For a modern PSU, the cheapest I can point to is the CX400 which is $30 after rebate at Newegg, and it's still $50 at checkout.

You can't trust that anymore, The junky ones are starting to have weights glued in them now.

The weight trick can only differentiate between PSUs that don't have filtering and those that do. **** PSUs will leave out the transient filter and most of the secondary-side caps, and in fact most of the components. However, there are many horrible PSUs that do have most of their components, so weigh more, but are still pretty bad; for instance, CM eXtremePower PSUs.
