    Buying a pc in an hour, last minute question!

    Ill get straight to the point!!!


    1) Best psu for around £70-ish (needs to power an 8800 GTX and Q6600)

    2) P5k Deluxe or Asus Striker Extreme?

    Cheers!!!

    Don't wast your money on a Striker Extream and spend the savings on a decent PSU - Seasonic S12 -650 Energy +.

    abit QuadGT will go just as well and save even more money!

    Daniel, i'm looking for the quad core - but thanks for the suggestion mate I'll stick with the P5k as thats what the general consensus seems to be..

    Anyone got any links for decent psus (preferably from ebuyer, scan, aria or specialtech!)

    Thanks so much everyone!!
