Decent cheap PSU?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm working on a smallish system to sell, and I need a power supply for it. It's not something huge, so I don't want or need a huge power supply for it. I doubt I'm going to put a video card in there (going with the on board ATI 3200), and if I do, it would probably just be a 4650 or equivalent. It would have a 2.7GHz dual core, 4gigs o DDR2 RAM, and so on.

Also, it's a mATX case, so long cables are a big no.

ANYWAY! What kind of power supply should I get for such a computer? I would go with a cheapo if I didn't know it would probably blow up doing the simplest things and kill the computer (making for an unhappy customer), but at the same time, I don't want to go with some high end model designed to run an entire household.

A quality 350-450W should be fine.

I have had excellent experiences from Sparkle PSU's when using them on budget systems, or systems that are not "hot-rodders".

How well do you think the Sparkle PSU would do playing stuff like World of Warcraft or maybe perhaps some Source games on a cheap video card?
