the soprano comes with PSU, i like the tsnumai better because of the side panel window. but if you want to get thermaltake the armor series is suppost to be really good. Armor has more fans.

Are you kidding me? LOL. Aspire's PSU's are awesome, and hardly ever get bad reviews. I had one and loved it.

wow the armorlook sweet and only $41 more than a tsunami with a 430watt pure power psu
i decided against the soprano cos it weighs more than the armor and the tsunami and it has a cheap looking front.

well what should i get the tsunami or the armor? but im still open to other options
