Consider this unit instead: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=13454
Edit: didn't see that you'd rather use a local shop -- it's up to you. Like I said the one you linked to should work alright, it's a decent unit.
Thanks, But if thats a decent unit then it will be ok i guess, I Wont be doing any overclocking since i have a stock cooler on my CPU, And im just getting a budget PSU untill i gather some money for a larger one.
Just a question, How do you figure its 348w on the 12v?
EDIT: I rang up centrecom and they said they had none in stock, They do however have some silverstone 500w PSU's in stock, I dont know the name of them but its gonna cost $75, Depending on what you guys say, Ill probably be buying that..Edited by kungfuelmo - 1/13/11 at 6:05pm
