Hi elbatrop. Hey I just recently ran o ver this at newegg. It may be a substitute power supply at a lower price I was looking for:

Can you tell me if that would work with this system elbatrop? I like the fact that it has another blue led in it to really light up that case. Although I did notice that my current ps has two fans and this one just has one. Does that really make a difference since I am not overclocking it? I currently would have two case fans, a fan built in on the vid card, a cooling fan on the processor, and whatever I choose for the power supply. Even if I chose a stock fan with a retail AMD chip and a power supply with only 1 fan at 500w shouldn't I be ok? Please advise.
that's a generic psu, so it's advertised 26A@12V probably isn't 26

if i were you, i wouldn't touch it

You don't need to buy any cables. Your motherboard comes with 2 SATA connectors already. And you don't need the special SATA power adapter either, the Western Digital drives can also hook up to a regular 4 pin power plug which your PS already has.

In response to diablo, 26A is more than enough anyway. I think that power supply will do just fine for his setup. He's not overclocking so it's not like he needs dead-on rails or anything.
