Top 5 Budget PSUs - Page 5

post #41 of 58
Well, I have 2 of the CX430's, 1 in a HTPC and one in my motheri-in-laws computer with no issues. 1 was $15 AR, 1 was $9.99 AR.
I have 3 of the EA380D's, all with no issues (plus 2 of the original 380's). I don't think I paid more than $20 for any of them after rebates.
I just ordered a NEOEco on Monday for $25 AR, should have it by Friday.

i think there needs to be more choice when buying a psu, and by choice i mean QUALITY choice, it's either spend 130$ for a psu, or get junk..... i mean something QUALITY around the 500-550w range for about 50-60$ would be appreciated, but i have not seen one, i would even like to see one in the 70-80$ range.... or maybe even 90$

There's lots of quality. A lot more junk, but there's quality below $100. I mean, the Antec NeoECO 520C is a high quality unit that usually goes for around $60.

Hey Phaedrus, a little question: What do you recommend more cx430 or Antec neo eco 400 (given price is not an issue)? Can I power a 2500k at 4.6ghz with a hd 6850 with any of these 400w's? Thanks

I'm not Phaedrus but I can tell you the Neo ECO 400 is better. And yes you can power that rig with it.

What's continuous 400 watt? Does it mean it can peak even higher than 400w?

Yes, for a limited amount of time. Depends on the unit.

Continuous is exactly what it sounds like. The PSU is rated to continuously put out that much power, 24/7.

Yes this usually means it can peak higher, but this is dependent on the unit itself, so check the posted ratings.
