And odds are the systems in question could probably run on a 400W. What are the specs?
I beg to differ, mine is astonishing! had it for years.

Oh I see, first page. Yeah 9500GTs don't use much power at all. 9800GTs is were power issues might be presented. Even still, but the 620W is a good supply, so its all good in the hood.

It's a quality unit. But there are better, especially for the money, and especially these days.

Which says nothing about the quality or how well it's priced.

This PSU is not for the system in my sig, but my son's system. This post.
Bottom line was to save some money and I could have saved even more by going with a 400 watt unit, I went with the 620 mainly to help with future upgrades.

Phaedrus, I canceled the TX750 order last week and ordered the Antec today.

Why? There are no legitimate reviews of it, it isn't 80+ certified, it doesn't even have FCC or UL ID numbers on it which means there is a 99.99999% chance that it's a piece of junk. Add to that it sells for a lot more than a lot of very good quality psus that have a proven history and pedigree. I wouldn't touch one with someone else's ten foot pole and wouldn't dream of hooking one up to any computer I own.

Plus, he's already ordered a much better PSU so why recommend something else?

I'm RMA'ing one of the Raidmax PSU's to have as a spare unit.

I played "doctor" on the other one, I removed the fan and installed it as a second intake fan on my sig rig, it moves quite a bit of air!
It's a little noisy when turned all the way up, but it does move some air though.
