Re: First Computer Build (in Germany) Revised
I had originally planned on getting a PSU from one of those brands, but the distributor that I'm buying from really highly suggested this PSU - he said that they had built 100s of PCs with it and have not yet had a complaint (also saw really high recs for it online). As I've been putting together my part order, I brought up the PSU several times saying that I'd feel better with a different unit, but he insisted that I wouldn't regret trying out this one. If it fails on me, I can go knock on his door and complain - it's not as if I'm buying from an online retailer or whatever where your complaints go to deaf ears and you feel so hopeless.
I'll mostly just be doing the standard things (internet browsing, word processing, etc.) in addition to some gaming. I don't have any really intense games (yet) because I've never had a computer that could handle them.
