ok i need some help quick, as i will be getting a new psu today and i only have a budget of around $90AUD, and i've come down to these two. One is Antec and the other Thermaltake, i know most people think their crap. The thermaltake is 430W and the Antec is only 350W. ThermalTake Antec Any Help?

i would go for the thermaltake, not just as it has more power but also a greater variety of connectors such as SATA and PCI-express, that means if you upgrade any components you wont have to change the psu


Thinking about it.

Yellowhampster, I have a Thermaltake PSU. Mine is the 480W version, but I have had it for almost two years now and have had no problems with it. Bear in mind, these are my system specs; P4 Prescott 3.4 w/ 1MB L2 2.0 GB Kingston PC3200 Dual Channel Radeon X850XT 256MB AGP 8X SB Audigy Sound Card 120 GB Maxtor ATA133 7200 8MB HDD 250 GB Maxtor ATA133 7200 8MB HDD DVD-RW/+RW Drive Front Panel Fan Controller w/numerous fans connected.

flodgy, i am paying for this out of my own money, and its my own computer, so it doesnt bother my parents. Anyway, i didnt buy a psu that day as i was unsure, i got a dvd burner smilie.gif But i think i will go for the thermaltake one. If it runs fine for you Operative34997, my specs arent quite as good as yours, so i shouldnt have any problemos. Thanks.
