Hi guys,
I'm currently on a weird non-branded PSU.. its 450w (see pic below for full specs)
my pc specs are:
Intel P4 550 Prescott 3.4ghz
512x2 DDR2 Cursair PC5300
1xSata 200gb Maxtor HDD
1xATA133 80gb Maxtor HDD
MoBo is Gigabyte GA-8I915P Duo-A

I'm going to get an XP-120 heatsink instead of my current stock hsf.. and I'm planning on getting a good psu as well that would stabilize my system at 4ghz atleast probably..
so.. I found this psu http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...C-pr1c3grabb3r
I really liked the specs for the price.. I can add extra few bucks if there is something better branded with specs more than I need..
any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

and here is the pic for my Current psu

Haven't got a clue, but it's the best PSU I've ever owned.

wouldnt the 500w Fortron blue storm be better? I mean better than the coolmax 550w in all terms..
price is not an issue since its about the same price
here is a link

it has dual 12v rails

the main downside is when comparing +5v between both
coolmax has 50a while fortron does 28a
would that matter in my case?

28a is enough?

They would normally consume around 1a each, although during the power up of some hard disks they can consume 1.5a for a short time.
