I would like something cheap and that can run the following:

- Socket 939 Dual Core Processor (probably the X2 3800)
- 2 GB RAM
- 8800 GTS 320 MB
- 1 CD and 1 DVD Drive
- 1 HD 120 GB
- 5 Fans (1 CPU, 4 case)
- A8N SLI-Deluxe mobo

I have a feeling its my psu thats holding my graphics card back. I am going to see if I can borrow my friends 600 watt psu tommarow to test it. If it is or isn't I have to get a new PSU anyways so please recommend me some.

I would prefer for it to be reliable too. A good company.

Thanks guys.

How cheap? If you can swing around $100 you could get:

Corsair HX520W

Built by SeaSonic so reliability is certain, has 40A on the 12V rail, very quiet, and modular. She'd do your rig justice.

it should be sufficient. the GTS 320 requires a 400W powersupply.
though for under $100 you should be able to find something slightly better probably.

I would choose the corsair but the issue is that the one I posted is only $35 somewhere else.

Would the rail fit for a dual core and everything else on the CoolerMaster?

Antec True Power-Trio 550W. Best PSU for under 100 dollars, friend has 1, works perfectly fine, powers everything, plus 8800gts, 3 hds, etc, fans. You wont be dissapointed for the price.

its SLI compatible to, so if you have a SLI motherboard and ever wanna be crazy and put another 8800 in your system, youll be covered
also has 3 12v rails

i had a 600w cooler master and that thing was horrible. the fan was loud, only the 24 pin power connector was sleeved nothing else and it was a mess in my case. it also ran pretty hot and had only 34a (i think) on the 12v rail.

go with the hx520. $105 after tax and shipping at buy.com
