Yeah, but I can't speak for that one. I would go with the one my friend has considering I know it's good and most of the reveiws are good. I wouldn't take a chance with the really cheap one.

I know its cheap, but Ive never had any problems with a PSU I mean they deliver power, I never really look at how stable the Volts are or w/e. Never had one die, never had one screw up.

Yeah, but you probablly haven't had a rig that requires this much power. Plus the PSU my friend has is well worth the extra cash.

hMMMm seems slower than the 2600Xt Gddr4 CF score. Not that I'm dissing you it's that I have been thinking about getting 2 of those cards.


VERY NICE SCORE FOR THE PIRCE:rockout:

@ POS, I have been looking at those Mushkin's as they have Fusion rail or active which ever It makes dual-rail worth my money. And modular good for wire hiding, 20 amps per rail. Very nice:D
