Need a PSU for under$100

Recommended Posts

My build is almost done. I need to get a PSU now. If you can, try and keep it at or under $100, but if I have to ill go a LITTLE higher. Here is my current setup:

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego

Video card: BFG Tech Geforce 6800GT 256MB

Mobo: DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D

Heatsink: Thermalright xp-120

RAM: OCZ 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit

Hard drives: Wester Digital 160 Gig (WD1600JD)

Western Digital 80 Gig (WD800JD)

Optical Drives: Havent decided yet. Most likely 1 DVD-ROM and 1 DVD-RW

Also, looks are important to me :wink: but if the performance is better on a plain looking one, then by all means suggest it. Id rather have performance than looks.

Also, perferably 500W

-Thanks

Wow quick posters here...Ya i heard a lot about that one too. Originally I was gona get an Ultra x-connect, but Ive seen a lot of negative reviews. S far im thinking about the Fortron Blue Storm 500W, so what elso do u recommend? I was also looking at the OCZ Powerstream 520. Do you think that its worth the extra money?

-What other PSUs do u recommend near $100.

Thanks!

Enermax Noisetaker 485w $95.00

 

the picture that is described on the link isnt the color you'll get. You get a much nicer darker metallic blue and gold grills for the fans. I have pics if you want, just got this for my system.

Nice PSU.

 

But this Enermax is only $83, is 535W instead of your 495W & is SLI ready.
