It's best to buy from a shop unless the ebay price is cheap and the person has good feedback.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Yah definitely buy from someone who has some descent feedback. I bought lots of computer stuff off Ebay with no problems, but I guess you never know. You should be safe though.

I built my last computer off of ebay(not my current one). I didn't have any problems. Look for "not DOA", or a return policy.
