Need a PSU for under$100

Recommended Posts

Paid $73 with free shipping for my Blue Storm. Very quite, heavy, seems to do the job for now.

Antec true power 520w and the Antec True Power 480w both of them are right at a $100.00 to 109.00 last time I checked at newegg hope that helps :nod:

Rosewill RP550:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817182010

 

By dinner with your extra money.

No :shake: Rosewill's are not recommended.

 

Rosewill does not produce any of its products, nor are they of custom design,

they only rebadge others standard products.

 

That "RP" model is made by ATNG & is the same as the Coolink & Coolmax,

these are not dangerous but they can not produce their rated power under normal operating conditions.

 

The Rosewill "RE" models are rebadged Youngyear, like the Aspire & some Ultra's,

these are dangerous in that when they fail they often take the video/mobo with them.

Well, I am only speaking for the model I have and not every Rosewill. The RP550 model produces plenty of power for me, and anything else would be overkill. I don't have any issues with it and alot of people have given good feedback on it, so I'd still say go with it and buy dinner. :nod: :nod:

Hunter,

 

I am building a system very similar to yours (identical with the exception of the RAM), and after doing A LOT of studying up, I really do think you should fork out the extra 30 bucks and go with the OCZ Powerstream.

 

Every forum I have seen, people that have one swear by it.

 

The deciding factor for me in making the 85$ Enermax vs. 129$ OCZ was someone telling me that for one of the most underestimated parts of a computer, the PSU can do the most harm if not of high quality. It certainly makes a difference in benchmarking and overclocking.

 

I'm going with the OCZ PSU, personally.
