    Question Another PSU Question

    Hi all thinking of getting one of these http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=43567 has anyone here used this PSU and if so are they any good reliabilty wise and are they NOISY. Will be going down the 939 road in the new year and was wondering if this would surpply enough jucie, cant give a spec as yet cos it will depend on what cash i have and what i salvage from other rigs i have. But i will put it in the PC i have now as the psu fan bearing i think has gone has the fan seems to have got noiser, spec is 2 Optical drives, 1 HD, 1Floppy, and 1Gb Ram plus a 256 FX5200 Graphics Card + 3 case fans cpu 2Gig system is not clocked so i think that would be fine for this rig. What are opinions on this psu any others you would recomend in that price bracket ??. Thanks in advance and merry christmas.

    Antec are always good. If you want a GOOD PSU that will last you a long time you will need a £70-100 budget.

    That is a good PSU for the price, I had a little look around and only the 430W TAGAN EASYCON is a contender (£55).

    If you are willing to strech your budget. Then either get a ENERMAX LIBERTY 500W (£75) or if you want the BEST- SEASONIC S12 600W.

    Good luck

    Seasonics are hardly the best psus in existence, i think its pretty much a given that goes to the PCP&C line. for 50 quid you could do worse, but a second hand 480W tagan/fsp whatever will do you a lot better

    Yes your right they are the best, but I cant find them anywhere in the UK. Plus, they are loud .

    Thanks.

    There are a couple of places that sell PCP&C, but they are very loud, and very expensive too.
