    i like the look on the tagan SLI ready PSUs. They have removable cableing, therefore you don't get loads of IDE hard disk power cables cluttering up your case, you can just take em out.

    On Scan for about 65 for the 480W one.

    I got an arctic freezer, its totally fine. Runs at about 35-40 degrees C

    I would think that as long as it's a decent PSU, it should run it fine, but there is also a 550W model availabel for an extra £10-15

    Hi there,

    If you could wait a little while (monday tuesday) i will give you my thought on the Tagan EASY CON 530W (£70). It is SLI ready.

    Thanks.
