    PSU - Which to pic?! :eek:

    I would like to know which type of PSU will suit my needs better and which power rating in WATTS i will need for my system:-


    Pentium 4 - 1.7 Ghz NO OVERCLOCKING
    Maxtor DiamondMax 80 Gb HDD
    512DDR Ram
    64 Mb GeForce2
    SoundBlasterLive Audio Card
    16 x DVD Rom
    Another 16 x DVD Rom
    CD-RW Drive
    Floppy Drive
    7in1 Internal Memory Card Reader
    Webcam
    2 Hubs giving 8 USB's - Used up by a whole host of Devices.
    I would love to add at least 3 cathodes, and another 2 fans to what i have { 3 fans}, making 5 in total.

    Which couple of PSU's will be most relevant to my needs, please consider i need an effective, practical PSU that needs to be used a lot !!!

    I have been told Q-TECS are no good and i should stay well away ??!!! Although i have seen a triple fanned, 650w PSU by q-tec for £39.

    I'm lookin for something in that price range up to £55 Max. But with better quality as i have been told.

    ASAP

    None of that's going to use up too much power, but it looks like you need a bunch of molexes, which probably means a powerful PSU. I know the Tagan 480 has 12, but you may be able to get a cheaper option to suit.

    I have found a Thermaltake 480w PSU, is that any good and would it be relevant for my system as above?

    A molex is the name of the plug that plugs into most PC device's (its the large one with 4 holes in it).
    Thermaltake are a good PSU maker, yes

    Molex is one of those little white connectors on the end ie connects to the device ie hard disc.

    Thermaltake or Hiper 480w chrome is a good bet

    No need to shout though
