I'd say go for a nice 450W non-modular. That's how much power you need, plus the reason PSUs have a ton of unused cabling is because people buy way too much wattage for their needs. Higher wattage...

The box clearly states 5 year warranty. Newegg has been wrong before with their listed information, so I expect the "1 year" to be wrong. Newegg is usually pretty clear on whether a unit is...
