Friend asked me to find a good cheap power supply.

I showed him this and he liked it.
The only problem is that it's refurb. Will that cause me any problems? Warranty? Reliability?

Power supply really shouldn't be something you want refurb. I'd recommend a Corsair anyways. What's your budget and how many watts/amps do you need?
The refurb should not cause you ant problem. All it means is that there was a defect and the company has fixed it to like new condition. I would recommend Corsair.
Yea if it was my money i would go and pick myself up a corsair, i wouldnt want to risk getting a refurb power supply, since everything is dependent on it i would stick with new.
I have heard that CM's refurbs are of high quality. And if it doesn't work I wouldn't see why they wouldn't replace it pretty easily.
I would skip it. It only comes with a 90-day warranty. For example a new Corsair as suggested usually comes with a 5 year warranty.
H e doesn't want to spend an uber amount of money but yeah, I can see where a short warranty can cause problems. Any more input is welcome.

Corsair TX750W, $119.99.

didnt realize it came to $50 after that huge rebate...
