The specs on that one don't look to bad, I just spent about the same on an Aspire Chameleon from New Egg, I've read a few reviews on it and it seems like it will work for me. My Ultra is on its way south and barely making 11v on the 12v rail

The ATX12V means that it does have the four pin 12v cord for P4 and newer mobos.

i think that a good 480w will out do that one, but i guess its ok...i dont think sparkles are very good, but at least theyre cheap. and yes it does have the 4 pin connector...

I wouldnt get that psu, it has very low amperage on the 12V rail.

You had me worried for a minuite there. As for Sparkle, the one thing they dont do is sparkle..... Maybe sparks and a bang but they dont sparkle.

Not as good??? Sorry bro, but I really have to disagree with you on that one. Enermax's are fantastic psu's.

Yup enermax are really really good, but prices are usually higher than similar rated antecs so thats why antecs get all that hype.

Anyways, if you were trying to go cheap I would have went with one of those 520watt aspires, might not be the greatest thing but they do have a high rated 12v rail.

Yeah, with generics is a hit or miss thing and most of the time you miss
. I was getting 2.54ghz from 1.8ghz (24hrs prime stable) on my old generic 350watt. Then I got a 550watt generic thinking it would do better and it put me down to 2.4ghz on the same setup.
