believe 4W4K3 bought one, didn't much like it, but then he found out it might have been his mobo and not the PSU, not entirely sure, but that's cheap for that many watts, so I wouldn't expect miracles, but I doubt it'll just simply suck out the box

Yeah I think I will use them for budget builds for people. They seem to be pretty reliable (I read the reviews). Of course, you can get a TT for like 40 dollars too (420 or 480w).

i have a 400W rosewill PSU. I works fine and soes what its supposed to. Some of the cable dont make a connection but thatts a rare case. There are better ones out there, but a Rosewill will work fine.

Power supplies can be misleading. On the system listed in my sig, I am using a 350w power supply, 20 pin, 16amps, and it runs flawlessly. It wont hold an overclock, though. Blue storm on the way (better safe than sorry).
