I spent a few weeks picking a power supply alone
. Whilst this PSU might not be the best suited to my computer, and it's definitely overkill, I got it really cheap from a guy who reviews PSUs on some other overclocking forum. When I was planning on buying new before, the top PSU on my list was an Antec Basiq Plus 550W
And I'd much rather have this PSU.
What I also do is research something loads, decide which one to buy, and then say that I don't need it and don't actually buy it.
