that deal only has a 30 day warranty so that is why I wouldn't do it even for that awesome of a price

I've personally only had to do 1 RMA of RAM with them and it went very smoothly. Mushkin is a great company.
Thank you very much I appreciate your time to help me and help me with very good information. You've made my choice easier to make and more confident in it. ^_^

I can use it for 30 days and see if its acting up or not and if it passes 30 days worth of computing thats good and if it only lasts like 5 months I wouldn't be to mad since its only 75$ and I can just get another one for 75$

You're spreading lies and garbage.
My bad man, my bad. There's just a little shopper in the back of my brain that isn't comfortable with how cheap that PSU is. It is literally 10 bucks cheaper than the cheapest 1000W I can find on Newegg. I always figured the cheapest things on Newegg lack in quality, so by extension I thought it would be bad. But please don't call what I say lies and garbage, that doesn't fly with me. This is OCN, people here are friendly.

Also, that plan to buy a new one if the other isn't good is a good idea. Even after you buy two you're still saving some money.

the only problem is that with my luck it would die on the 31st day

Here's another thread on these:

http://www.overclock.net/online-deal...-ram-psus.html

Newegg review here

Had some complaints, but only 3 reviews on there, but the 1200w also got a few more complaints. But then again, the people who have problems are more likely to write reviews. This was the only reason I was going to go for the 800w muchkin psu for $75, because it got great reviews on Newegg and thus seemed more reliable.

But now I'm really considering the 1000w; all I need is something for a gtx 460 sli setup, and either of these is sufficient. Because the 800w seems to have more reliability than the enhanced joule series, and also because of the quadrail, I wanted to go for that but it's out of stock now I think. I think 1000w should be fine though; anyone owned any of the enhanced joule series for a long time?

Really afraid if these only have a 30 day warranty - I thought it was a year.

Maybe I'm rushing things but I really need a good PSU and I'm about a day or two from buying another PSU at a Tigerdirect store and crossing my fingers on getting my money back.

Was really hoping to buy my first SSD from them when SF 2xxx series is released but not at this rate.
There are Mushkin reps on these forums that you can contact.
