FINAL DRAFT FOR NEW COMPUTER BEING BOUGHT TONITE
https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...draft%2E%2E%2E

Bad power supply choice, unless it is a FPS model, which I highly doubt.
Refer to power supply guide linked in signature for brands in your price area.
So buy a case without a PSU included.

I know what power supply to get, because one, I wrote the guide and two I read alot of reviews.

What makes a bad power supply choice... The quality of the internal components is horrible in some brands. And the lack of quality makes them dangerious to run since they are likely to have voltage and amperage flucturations outside the allowed limit and if they die they tend to take other components with it.

Oh and actually I ment Topower or Tagan model of the raidmax power supply not FSP, but those aren't sold with cases, which makes the on your buying a POS.
Cost effective yes, as in cheap. But also bad quality.

The power supply is to a computer what a heart is to a human, you don't want a POS pumping out the power do you?

Most good power supplies are not sold with cases.
However, silverstone cases are something to look into as they are good power supplies as well.
