    Default Finding a new PSU is killing me

    I was all set to buy the Corsair VX-550 from ZZF until they rejected my Visa gift card (they don't take them).
    Buy.com does and I can get the Corsair HX-520, but I would have to mod my case to make it fit since it's a bit deeper. I am willing to do so if this proves to be the best choice.

    I am not fixed on the Corsair, but just heard good things about them.
    Here is what I have and am looking for.

    1. Never will do SLI or crossfire
    2. Current setup: C2D 6400 @3.0, 2gb ram, 7950gt, 6 HD, LSI RAID card, DVDRW.
    3. Want headroom for future PCi-e Raid card to replace LSI and possibly single 8800 or the like.
    4. Have to stay below $100 (including shipping) initial cost due to size of gift card. So less then $100 AR no good it must be before.
    5. The lower the cost the better, but I will not cheap out.
    6. and this kills me ZZF and possibly others won't take the gift card, but won't know until I try.

    Please guide a very frustrated soul. Spent all day deciding on the VX only to get shot down.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Default So find a different vendor

    http://www.google.com/products?q=550vx&scoring=p shows that Provantage has it for $82.58.

    There are too many internet vendors to worry about one being a dick.

    Alternatively, you can call Visa and see if ZZF's merchant agreement lets them decline Visa cards.

    Thanks, but no rebate from them. Which makes it $20 more after shipping.

    I feel so stupid. It wasn't ZZF's fault for not taking the gift card. It was mine.
    I fumbled the date on the card.
    I got the VX-550 from them after all.
    ZZF go go gadget PSU.
