Default This PSU any good?

I ordered this PSU a few weeks ago and it arrived last week but in the wrong colour (main reason I got it.) But anyway I sent it back for another one but am having doubts whether it'll have enough power leads for my computer.


I know it's cheap etc but it's got some good reviews and thought **** it but anyway will it have enough leads for:

XFX 6800GT
73gb 10,000rpm Raptor HD
1 Side fan
1 DVD-RW
1 CD-RW

PIC of leads:

I never heard of that brand. Witch is not the best sign, not that i know every brand out there. Like aj2003 said, its not the best. But i think it would get the job done. I wouldent use it for heavy use though.

It's retailers brand, alot of good reviews as you can see. I was just wondering if it'll have enough leads for my computer, I think my 6800gt what I'm getting needs two atleast !

Ugh that thing has hardly any connectors, not enough for you. I would cancel the order on that piece of crap if possible. You have a nice vid card, hard drive and everything. Don't skimp out and get a cheapy power supply. Get a good power supply from OCZ, Thermaltake, or Antec. I wouldn't trust that power supply to touch a system like that.

My friend has one of thoese, it's ok but as you said it's a retailer brand, Ebuyer is a good brand for Fan's/Case's/Accessories etc, but I wouldn't go for the Power Supply Units.

Will this be sufficent? The blue LEDs will go nicely with the whole blue thing I got going on inside my cheap ebuyer case.


Antec PSU

Yeah that's fine, although if you are looking for a PSU I have a great one for sale. Check my sig.

Cheaper then the one you are going to purchase and it brand new condition, too.
