I am sorry I wouldn't risk my hard earned money on their garbage period. Glad to hear you have one going strong even though it doesn't run how its supposed too. :lol: Kinda of reminds me about Ultra back in the day :down:

Still sore that old Saint Nick didn't drop off one of these at your house: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16899261002&cm_re=rosewill_tool-_-99-261-002-_-Product

First off use this power supply calculator not neweggs. I put in your specs and your rig is pulling less than 200W.

I would also recommend looking at reviews from Jonny Guru. One of his PSU reviews is ten times more useful than 100 newegg reviews...

 

As said before the corsair and antec are good choices. The Coolmax is crappy don't even consider it. BFG exited from the graphics card market and fired alot of their PSU team. It was rumored that they were going to drop out of the PSU market as well. Kingwin is even worse than Coolmax in my opinion, their power supplies are all about appearance without the performance to back up their claims.

 

I would recommend one of these PSUs.

I can't recommend my Seasonic X-Series 560W strongly enough. I am extremely happy with it and it is virtually silent (it actually runs fanless when under 20% load...). Opening the box, I was immediately impressed by the quality. Also: don't go buying more wattage than you need, it wastes money and often lowers efficiency.

 

 

Edit: Here is a link.

Rosewill is not known to provide good PSUs since what they are selling is relabeled PSUs made by the OEM "Superflower" which is known to be a pretty dodgy PSU manufacturer. I would avoid buying a Rosewill if I were you.

 

I wouldn't call Super Flower dodgy. The most recent platforms they have been putting out have been pretty impressive, with the only Platinum rated unit I have seen tested.

Looks like this Rosewill is probably based on the same Super Flower platform as the Kingwin Lazer Gold and NZXT Hale90. Would obviously need testing for confirmation, and given the choice, I'd pick one of the other brands over Rosewill anyway.

 

 

Anyway, there are some pretty good recommendations floating around in the thread.

 

I'd like a more definite idea of what upgrades this might end up powering though before making suggestions.

rosewill makes good affordable products

their normal PSU I wouldnt put it in a computer with a high end graphic card though

that PSU... I didn't know they made a christmas holiday version...

it is probably just rebranded as others have said so should work fine and its 80certified

for that much money I would probably pick a different brand
