JakkcDefine how a PSU can be crap (not being funny or cheeky, i wanna know!)

It's about the amount of power it can sustain. Say you tried to power a high end system (Athlon 64 3500+, GeForce 6800, 200gb HDD) on a bog-standard 350w PSU. It would likely die the moment you switched it on, due to it being unable to sustain a high power load for an extended period. Higher quality PSUs (Hiper, ThermalTake, Enermax, CoolerMaster, etc) can sustain a near-full power draw practically indefinately, which makes them a much more efficient solution than having to pay out for a cheap 600W electric-guzzler to do the same job.

Count_Chocu1awhat about this one: http://www.mwave.com/mwave/viewspec.hmx?scriteria=BA21827

Yeah that one looks good enough...

What are your specs??

I am probably getting the ANTEC NEO480 one, it was a unique cable managment kind of thing, so you only use cables you need, which is great for me because i have cables cluttered everywhere that i don't use.

Edit - Just saw specs in sig. That PSU will be fine to handle it.
