Maybe u should go for a 500W Enermax, but all depends on Money too 8)

Well if CM would start building power supplies..... you could think of buying one, otherwise specs for the PSU you suggest are lower than my 465W,and what's worse is that they are lower than 365W model, so i would suggest u go for quality on PSU.

suicycoslayer,

Not all 500W power supplies are equal. The power supplies you linked to have a lot of bling-bling, but aren't so good in the quality arena. Not only that, pay close attention to what you actually get for $99.00. Everything is an extra charge, including the warranty.

I doubt Cooler Master could manufacture power supplies. They would have to be an outsourced product branded with the Cooler Master logo. If they outsouced to a company like PC Power & Cooling, that would be great, but there are a lot of companies putting a 500W label on a PSU that hardly warrants a 365W rating.

I agree with Grump, he mentioned PC Power and cooling. That is what I have, actually this is my second PSU from PC Power and Cooling.

An ATX 510, they rate there power as Sustained power not MAX power like many others, plus there power is very stable. the 510 will actually put out like 650 Max. It is Pricey but why skimp in the Power that is running your whole system.

I think the heart of PC system is the power supply. Thus, the quality and power capacity are key issues when you want to choose a PSU (Power Supply Unit). As I know, most of power supplies that they are relabeled and their power capacity is not truth. By the way, most of high wattage power supply do not meet UL 240VA standard. It means V * I can not exceed 240VA. It is very easy to check on rating label. Hence, I suggest you to choose a real-power power supply. For your configuration, a 350W or 400W power supply is enough.
