    FSP Epsilon 700W or Tagan 700W?

    You're looking at ~ £570 for your cpu & gfx so they deserve a quality supply

    MSI P55-GD80, i5 750
    abit A-S78H, Phenom 9750,

    ive had both of the ones buff mentioned and i have to say that i like the tagan the best. both solid performers, but the fsp had some seriously poor quality control issues.

    didnt you have a p4 earlier?

    Seasonic S12-500 a seriously good and stable PSU for only £75 here:

    Or the Seasonic S12-600. The PSU is one of the most important building blocks of your system, and contribtes not insignificantly to stability and OC potential - don't skimp on it - it should last through several CPU/MainBoard upgrades.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    I was reading down the thread, and had the exact same thought. Just before realising I'd been beaten to it.

    If you want modular - you can't go wrong with the M12-600 (when it comes out), or for a normal one, the S12-600w. That should give you plenty of power to run a Core2Duo System even with the top graphics cards.

    Another vote for Seasonics. I have an older one and they seem to be well built.
