    After a New PSU

    Hello
    I am after a new psu, prefebly either one that has blue LEDs in (or some other type of blue lights), or a quiet one, but tbh, neither of these matter too much.

    It has to power a:
    Asus 6800nu
    AMD64 3500+ (Winnie)
    Abit AV8
    A couple of hard drives, and a couple of optical drives
    umm...a few usb devices

    Budget ~ £50, tho i am thinking of getting it 2nd hand, so please bear this in mind as obv i could ge ta better one for under 50 quid this way.

    cheers

    Looks pretty good, and looking at the specs it reminded me, i want something i won't have to upgrade ina few years, so it must support all technologies/ones coming out soon.

    cheers.

    Your system should be drawing about 250W in total flat out, and when not playing games probably more like 100W.

    There are plenty of flashy ones around the 400W mark, given the dual rail (cheap) nature of modern PSUs I wouldn't want to go much below 400W.

    Not had any problems with my Tagan, also heard a few good things about the Hiper Type-R's, either or to be honest.
