    Default Looking for a good psu for a good price for my little project

    I have a asus p5qlvm epu motherboard
    2.66 xeon qudcore 3350 processor
    at the moment only 3 gb of ram ocz(might upgrade in the future)
    Geforce gtx 260 graphics card (might upgrade but it does the job pretty well)
    2 hard drives cannot at the moment remember the specs on them. (might add a third) but they are sata drives
    2 120mm fans will be purchasing a third

    i looked at a couple of calculator saying i should run around 600 w

    i just haven't been able to decide on what to get their are so many choices on power supplies i want reliability at a affordable cost that wont catch on fire or fry my system.

    also the reason why I am currently looking is the psu i currently have not sure on the brand cannot remember has been causing random shutdowns and i have to wait atleast 30 mins before i can boot again. Im not 100 % on if its the issue but i would rather have a decent brand than a chinese firecracker

    Where are you buying from?

    You don't need nowhere near 600W for that setup.

    probably below 100 just because I like to keep some money in the bank for emergencies etc. I have looked and compared just so many options and companies like corsair, antec etc to choose from makes it a tad confusing at times.

    Default Wait until the cx 430 goes to $20 AR at NewEgg

    That system is going to pull 300W from the wall, max, meaning 240W output, so a 400W PSU will have no trouble at all.

    I usually haunt the deals on NewEgg and get a CX 430 for the shelf when the $20 rebates are active.

    thats what i have been doing alot of them pretty good deals i probably wont stay with this gpu for the whole year i just wanna make sure i have a little room for upgrades if need be.I have been looking at newegg alot definitely some good deals on their im just more or less worried about the name because they are more properly rated than the cheap ones that are rated over what they can actually supply.
