Lightbulb Any Good Power Supplies?

Having trouble finding a stable PSU, could use some suggestions. Was looking for something modular with at least 20A on the 12v rail. Modular was only an option but not required.

Is the 3.3 rail important? Should it have at least 20a as well?


Case: ThermalTake Armor w/ 4 fans
Motherboard: ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe
CPU: AMD 64 x2 3800+
RAM: 2 x 512 (1GB) Kingston Hyper X DDR 400/ will upgrade to 2GB at least.
HDD: (1)Maxtor Diamondmax 10 250 GB SATA/ will upgrade to at least 1 more
GPU: XFX GeForce 6800 GS/ will upgrade to SLI
Optical Drive: (1)Plextor 716A Combo Drive/ will get 1 more

Look into Fortron PSU's. Underrated, cheap, quiet, and you can't really beat their reliability and stability.

Antec is another good brand, but generally a little more pricey.

For that system and since your upgrading to SlI, I would reccomend this one.

^^ This is simply a beastly Power supply, Active PFC, Dual 12V @ 18 Amps Each and SLi Certified)

If you want a good one at a for cheaper try this one.

Forton is good but I ually only reccomend them for cheaper builds. You can still buy one that Molsen linked, thats fine.
