@ Chewy,

Yes, reality watts in this case equals real electric unit of power watts. And not smoke and mirror watts.

If you have a brand of power supply that is falsely advertising output of 500 watts SAFELY, and you can prove (which would be difficult and costly) that the unit CAN NOT output 500 watts safely or caused you computer to catch fire, that (in the USA) would be grounds for a court battle against the vendor to seek damages.

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835106068 CPU Cooler

Somewhere in the $300 - $400 range; I haven't totaled it exact yet, since there is rebates involved, etc.

BTW, I never buy "Box Store" or "Branded" pc's, but that is just my pers. preference. In my experiences with friends/family who have owned all the big names, they have been very limited in what can be done with their pc's.

If a part fails, upgrading can be a pain, weird BIOS settings, & maybe worst of all, mediocre components. (DVD burners w/ no firmware updates, for example) Since the "brand name" is building on a "budget", they are going to cut corners everywhere possible.

I say, build your own, you will be very happy with it!
cheers, katz
newegg is the bomb. I'm working on building a computer myself and my roommate built a really nice computer a few months ago for about $650 bones. Not a bad for a college student budget!!

Default Any more GREAT Deals in PC hardware this week?

Chewy,
I may have picked that power supply TOO SOON..
How do I know it's going to work with what ever mother board/cpu I get?
I just realized that there is atx/atx12v ... jeez
Not that way in the old days!

edit: but how do you think I am doing "budget wise?"
I got the case today !!!
Nothing better than "free" hehe
(I know better)


OK NEXT Big purchase(s) Mo-Bo, memory.. I can wait til they come down a bit, and also Graphics card and sound card ( I don't like them intergated boards..suck)

don't bother with an sli mobo, that PS doesn't support it, but should handle a nicer pci express within your budget(sli is 2 expensive vid cards)
