Default PSUs?

I have seen on some site that thermaltake are good PSUs, and on some other sites that theyre not. Which is true. Also what brand should i go for if not thermaltake, I was gonna go with Antec but its a bit pricey for my budget, caus ei wanna get a case and PSU.

Thermaltake is very good. Every PSU currently in their line is rock stable.

I bought mine for $30. It runs @ 12.159V idle and 12.012 @ full load.

Anyways, TT is fine for a Average Build with no overclocking, at least in my experience and at least with those I have talked to at overclocking sites.

They aren't the worst and they aren't the best. Thats why I say Antec or OCZ. :P

Thermaltake's new stuff is actually more stable than antec.

Have you used a ToughPower from Thermaltake before? Antec can't compare to it.

Thermaltake is much less consistant with quality, but they can and sometimes do make good PSU's.
