Don't get me wrong, they are great power supplies. Very very "Great".

lol...I just think the deals on them are very good.

If it was another choice, I would recommend:
Newegg.com - XCLIO GREATPOWER X14S4P3 550W ATX12V 550W Power Supply 100-240V / 200-240V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail

Good god you guys were fast- i was expecting it to take a few hours like the last time I made a thread. lol.

The only thing I can think of really is cutting that case down- and I'd prefer G.Skill (not a fanboi of crucial)

And I noticed No OS listed on anyones?

Xclio? PC Power & Cooling? Antec (I find them costly)? Hiper? CoolerMaster? Yes, there are plenty of great choices out there, but the thing is that will people buy it at high prices or buy something that is cheaper and performs as great as the high-end ones?

I would list Vista if you're looking to play future games.

What's not to like about Ballistix? They're way cheaper than the G. Skills, and perform on par, and then some...

See?
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

why buy "pizza hut" pizza when you can get "bobs pizza" with the same junk, slightly different flavor for less money? = exact reference to the "why buy this PSU over this?"
if they perform the same and have the same and have been tested the same and only minor differences- I don't care if the brand name is "Iam a sissy girl"

I guess Ill reconsider the RAM- I just had bad luck with them in the past.

My Ballistix have just crapped out on me, but that doesn't change my view on them. Every company has a lemon in one of their products, once in a while. It's just the price on the Ballistix compared to the G. Skill, is what I'm saying.

Or:
Newegg.com - Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Well I just had a lemon and it sorta scarred me for a while- however I should be open minded since many tech changes have happened in the past few years.


Btw I have literally abused G.Skill and they still performed- carried in pocket without protection all day-- handled roughly without gloves/static proof, wiped my forehead with it and just abused horridly. Ran great for as long as I had it- ended up sellin the machine to pay bills, shoulda just forgot bills and kept the machine lol.


Least someone laughed at that.. although I might Spraypaint that on my PSU i have now just for laughs....

and Iam seriously thinking of toughing it out on this POS until the Phenoms come out... at least to just see the benchmarks and reviews of them (in case there estamated price of 1,300 is accurate)
