    I have a pretty good experience with LC Power PSU's. One that i had, a LC 550W Green Power is 8 years old and still running fine in my friends system. I had to re-lubricate the fan bearing, but other than that it's working fine. It was below 50 EUR at the time i bought it and when 550W units were pretty much high end stuff.
    _JP_ says thanks.

    I have a 550 watt Kingwin PSU I bought back in high school, about 8 years ago, all but 2 of the 4 fans are dead, but it still works fine, I have it in my garage, powering a music streaming PC. I believe I payed 55 dollars for it, and that was an insane price at the time, try getting a PSU nowdays of any brand to last that long.
