Haha... Ok so I've figured that between the 3 of you, you all are people I should take advice from. So which is better? the Aspire of the Tt?

Same price, but the Aspire is a 500watt, so i'd rather go w/ that one, but I've heard Aspire psu's are bad, so would the Tt be better?

Hah I'm confused.

But ya, I asked at a different fourm before this and people kept telling me to buy a prebuilt socket A comp :/
I'd love to make him buy a s939 board, but it's just too much to spend at one time to get a working computer.

Hmm I do have a $50 gift card to frys tho... they wouldn't happen to be running a deal on a s939 G6100 board?

Is a good bundle for a 3700 and a motherboard for 240$

they don't really have any deals on just motherboards or just cpus at fry's. (Outpost is fry's online store)

Remember the fortron is still a strong psu. Just because it's 400W doesn't mean it doesn't outperform 500w's

Ya, hmmm just trying to decide which is the best bargin.... I'd love to use the 500watt supple, but I've heard bad things about Aspire... checking the details for the tt now, I'll look into the Forton in a sec.

EDIT: Ok, so what's the difference between the 12v rails on the Tt and the Aspire? they both say 18...

The Aspire has 2 +12v rails, look carefully.

Aspire is generally regarded as all flash and blah performance, but you can't go wrong with 36A.

Ahh ya, I saw that but didn't know what to think of it. Guess that means the Aspire is better by quite a bit.

Im gonna say yes if it does have to rails. (not taking the time to look so im taking yalls word for it) BTW 3700 is a good deal but to much for his budget PC. At least for 200 he can get a 3500+ 939 and mobo.
