My System Specs

Default

I don't know anything about that brand, but something I think is common with lower end PSUs is over rating their max wattage. So it might not actually deliver 450W, and another thing is how "clean/dirty" the actual voltage is at higer load levels.

I've ran my 6950 on a cheapo 500W a few times, not something I like doing, so for my backup rig I'm going to get a new 1.

Here's too that are cheap but seem very good, I was considering these

can't find the reviews for that 1 I was using 2 weeks ago, but they're out there somewhere
