    Question recommend a PSU

    Ok, without going mad, i need a half decent PSU to run the following as for some reason, my current one wont run it, or i have a knackered mobo, which if thats the case, i have a wasted x2 setup gathering dust.

    I have the following to start with

    X2 4400
    A8N32-SLI Deluxe
    2GB Patriot
    X1900XT-X 512MB
    2x 250GB Sata
    NEC DVDRW
    X-FI Fatility
    Floppy Drive
    4 case fans and the fan from the scythe ninja

    I would prefer the psu to come from scan as i have a few other things i will be ordering.

    Thanks

    Ive got the 520W Corsair, youve gotta love it, excellent thick cables its a really solid PSU for the money. Also 5 years warranty is something that you dont see alot.

    Yup, I've gotta say the Corsair 520 - the build quality and reliability of the Seasonic S12, but at a lower price tag. On to a winner there
