    Well, the marketing sounds great, but with all that buzz you'd think it would be 80+ certified, huh?

    I agree, should be 80 plus Bronze or Silver but kudos for the nice low price. I wonder with this now being released if they had time to get it tested.

    I have a Thermaltake TR2 470W model and is powering FINE my rig:
    PII 940BE oced to 3.6ghz
    BIOSTAR TA790GX A2+
    4gb ram Mushkin
    radeon 5850
    Asus Xonar audio card.
    WDC 640AALS caviar black

    Actually i powered an A64 4200+ oced to 3ghz and 2900xt with a Thermaltake Purepower 430W that died after 8 month.
    In both cases i had no performance problems.For a decent Gaming rig a 60$ PSU is suficient.

    Just back up your files and hold onto your receipts. If you don't mind going a couple months of the year without a computer there shouldn't be any problem.
