You weren't kidding i've been researching, and I really don't know if I want to buy another psu. I can't find one that will touch those ratings for 70 bucks as far as I can tell. You can cheat on watts, but indicating how many amps there are at different voltage is harder to decieve the consumer. I can't believe these psu's can be had for around 15 bucks there not light either. Never had a crash yet running just about everything I could. But in the back of my head i'm thinking what if I got a better one? :bigsmile: How good would it run then? Anything to squeeze every little bit of performance out of my lame dial up internet service ( no high speed here).
I am checking out the Fortrons, and it still doesn't have as good of specs on the amps at 12 volts, or any voltage for that matter at around the 70 dollar range. I've checked Antec they seem about the same. It may be cheap but it seems stable I just hate to spend 70-80 dollars on something that isn't as powerfull. Then again it may be better, but how can they lie on the amps they usually tell most of the story.
What are the benifits of dual rail +12v?
That was a good point on the quality of the components it may be more powerfull, but when, or if it does crash it could screw everything up for me like another posted. The grinding noise has been running like that for a long time now with no difference in performance. If I do upgrade I don't want to go more than 70 dollars and I'm leaning towards the Fortrons, and Antecs.
