    No experience with Thermaltake, but Antec is one of the best brands. I would put them with Corsair. In fact Antec and Corsair power supplies are made by the same company, Sea Sonic.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonic

    Thermaltake is also a pretty good brand, but I've never owned one of their PSUs.

    Stay away from coolermaster unless you research the model before buying. They can be very hit and miss on quality. Also avoid FSP.

    Seasonic are usually very good quality at reasonable prices if u can find them. Their caps are usually better than corsair's.

    Seasonic, Enermax, Cougar, Superflower, Fortron Source (FSP), Silverstone, some XFX, some OCZ, PC Power & Cooling (PCP&C), some Thermaltake, be quiet!, AcBel, Seventeam, Delta Electronics..
    There are so many out there which are better than those noname firecracker units it makes my head hurt lol

    It doesn't have to be brand new as long as it's better than the UMAX/Leadman crap ;)
    (and can deliver what it says on the label :laugh:)

    I was just listing a bunch of PSU makers which would already be better than the UMAX/Leadman from the first post ;)

    A mediocre Superflower, Fortron, Thermaltake or whatever would already be worlds better than the UMAX.

    Look around locally (whereever you are) for a PSU with 430-550W from any of the brands I listed above (my previous post), then list them here with the price they would cost.

    That way we could help you pick a good one that doesn't cost a fortune and is pretty much guaranteed to work with your system without blowing up lol ;)

    edit: if you want to, you could also look for used brand name PSUs and save a couple bucks.

    Prices on the others? Only reason I ask, that's a really good price on a BNIB Earthwatts 650. I'd jump on it if the premium for the others(except the gs600) is more than $15.

    @Mohammed,

    Looking at the picture of the Seasonic 500w on eBay, it appears one of the fan blades is missing. You might want to question the seller about that before buying it.

    My preference would be either the Seasonic 600 or the Antec.

    Corsair or Enermax are my choice of PSU's...

    I've owed a few 1200W PC Power and Coolings and they seemed to have died on me for some reason... but never the less, brilliant units and the RMA process was brilliant...

    My Corsair units are AX 1200 Gold units and I would highly recommend them :) Even for my Socket A and Socket 939 rigs I'm looking at getting a cheap ish CX430 units for the socket A and the 939's I'm considering a pair of 650W Corsair units because I'm thinking of upgrading the rigs next year... I dont want to have to spend out twice because I've learnt in the past that cheap PSU's end up costing you more and as you said kill hardware.. And they don't help when overclocking either.. I had a 550W Q-Tec unit when I first starting overclocking Socket A rigs and I bought a Enermax 465W and I managed to overclock further and it was a more stable unit...

    I never did cheap PSU's again...

    Learnt the same when I was benching 3D too, cheap graphics cards no matter how much ram they say they have, aren't going to ever match a faster, less rammed GPU... You'd get what you'd pay for :)

    LOL @ Q-Tec. I have one of those in the closet I use when I drain/clean/test my watercooling loop or test fans. I would never dream of using it for anything else.

    On Topic: You really can't go wrong with Seasonic a very solid and high quality PSU.

    Taiwan has their own President, legislator, laws, currency and defined boundary of land.
    sounds like a country to me.

    After closely looking at the picture the blade is in fact there. No blade missing, it is just the angle of the blade and camera while the picture was taken.

    And indeed, the official name of the nation that Taiwan forms is called the Republic of China.

    BFG no longer exists as a company so unsure if you would get an RMA if things don't go right. Although, if you don't get a DOA product, any of those would work well.

    EDIT:

    What happenned to that Antec?

    I win in that auction

    but seller doesn't has idea about cost of shipping

    so when he go to post office he found cheapest shipping around 60$ + PSU that make price up around ~ 110$

    I don't have a problem with that price, but I want to be sure I am not spent money for PSU without warranty




    Is anyone have Idea about this power Supply " Corsair GS700 ". I mean is that good PSU

    It's one of the better PSUs you've listed so far. Quite a bit better deal than most of them you've shown.

    It's good if you have no other option. yeah shipping is going to kill that deal on the Antec.
