Cool My new Enermax Galaxy PSU

Bought it the other day at Canada Computers for $254.79. It's the 850 Watt model (950W peak).























Just look at the size of that beast! And it's pretty heavy....but the features are more than worth it.

Hope you've got the room to fit that into your case...... :)

If Vid card companies keep it up we'll soon have to mount our PSUs to the outside of the case.

I'm ready with bungy straps!
Could strap a bunch of them on there.

For that price you didn't get an 8-pin PCI-E connector?
