I called the store and they cannot sell over the phone. Not a happy customer here.

I did call my local computer store he said he had a 650 Antec for $100.00 Turns out it was a model - Antec EarthWatts EA 650W Power Supply Green at Memory Express

But he pointed out that the voltage output is not adequate for some of the video cards that are coming out.

He talked me into the $110 Thermaltake TR2 RX 750. He said that they use that one in the gaming builds they make and sell at his shop - he does a brisk business selling custom PC's. "Never had a problem with one". And its modular & Bronze 80 certified. Thermaltakeusa**Power Supply**600W - 850W**TR2 RX 750W : TR2 RX 750W TRX-750M

I've read good reviews of this unit - and some that are not so good.

Seriously, take it back and refer the sales"person" to online reviews. For $100 you can get a real quality PSU.
