    Default PowerSpec 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Semi-Modular

    I am building a new rig and the only thing I am keeping from my old rig is a corsair TX550m. I need a PSU to throw in in order to sell my old rig.
    My old rig is a FX 6300 with a GTX 970.

    Microcenter has a PowerSpec 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Semi-Modular open box. It would be under $40 with the coupon. Is it worth throwing in? I don't want to sell anyone a timebomb.

    I asked the guy at microcenter. He said that their psu is made by thermaltake. Considering Thermeltake doesn't even make their own psus I am not sure what that means.

    For all you "flippers" out there, is it easier to sell a rig with an unknown gold, semi PSu or a evga 500b

    Thanks

    It uses the High Power Astro Lite platform by Sirfa, looks like this and is used in this http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=420 and that http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=466 and that https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...-psu,4373.html, so it's actually pretty good.

    Thanks. I don't know why the guys there talk out of their rear ends. Where did he even get that thermaltake nonsense.

    It simply means that he doesn't know where he is talking about.
