    The one I'm looking at is a 600w max. I've never really heard much about the company. Does anybody have any thoughts?

    For $10, you're asking for your computer to go up in a ball of flames. I'd spend at least $60 on a PSU, otherwise quality will be extremely poor. The PSU is the most important part of your system.

    Oh, I completely understand. That's the reason I haven't clicked buy now. When I googled reviews and specs on it I didn't see anything that looked even remotely close to the PSU in the picture. That's why I turned to you guys, maybe one of you have owned one simmilar and can vouch for the company's credibility at least.

    Oh also, just letting you know, I have owned one of those I linked to for about 2 years and still going strong.

    a $20 psu, regardless of brand will cost you hundreds in new gfx cards and mobo's. Simple. I had a zalman psu that I had to return for warantee once and while it was away I chucked in a cheap omni 500w psu and fragged my gfx card, mobo and cpu!!!!!

    So Mafia, after my personal experience with my FIRST EVER $20 psu, which was better than an Antec that fried a socket a rig, you wouldn't recommend any inexpensive psu?

    EDIT: OK ok, I came off harsh to Mafia, I apologize.
