Have you ever heard the expression "If it's too good to be true, it is."?

If so, then there is no possibility for a 750W power supply that will perform at it's "spec" for $70 bucks.

Your better off spending a little extra and picking up the 610W PC Power and Cooling Silencer on newegg.

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.
