Avoid the thermaltake 430 unit if at all possible, just as said above. Its average quality at best, and most units have gotten a pretty bad reputation lately

If you need a good unit and are on the cheap side you should only be looking at FSP and Xclio. .

I had the same ThermalTake unit that he linked to in my old system for about 6 months before it decided to die spectacularly - and from what I've read and heard of others experience, it's not an uncommon occurrence either, even with their high-end 'performance' products.

Personally, I'd prefer to go for a more mainstream brand such as Enermax, Seasonic or Tagan when purchasing a PSU - after all, it's the one component in your system that has the potential to take anything and everything else out with it should it decide to fail. I've learned not to take risks with cheap hardware.

ThermalTake makes great cases, but I wouldn't trust some of the PSUs as far as I could throw them. Antec is a really good power supply company, and I've only heard positive things about them; so good luck with yours, looks really nice.
