Nice! good call on the combo deal. I think I'll stick with the corsair PSU though because I know it has long cables and I want plenty of length for a case with a bottom mount PSU. Also, I'm personally not a huge Rosewell fan and that PSU has mixed reviews. I'll be ordering soon. thanks for all the help, much appreciated.

Edit: Oh yeah and I'm not a fan of LED PSUs. Don't think my customers would appreciate that much.

Bedroom Rig:
HP Pavillion Mini Tower Case
Intel Pentium III Coppermine @ 800MHz
Hyundai 128MB PC100 SDRAM @ 3-2-2-5
Vision Tek Xtasy 9200SE PCI 128MB @ 200/400
19GB Quantum Fireball

Don't be jealous!

oh i just read a review where someone mentioned the blue led. i was trying to suggest one without one and i thought that one was a non-led psu.

thats fine then, aslong as it fits in your budget.

With what? I think you forgot to link.

Intriguing.... You seen any bench marks to show even a slight speed increase?
From what I saw, they're pretty even actually.

The only things the Black has over the SE is:

32mb cache vs 16mb cache,
dual processor technology or something
5 yr warranty vs 3 years.

I always thought 32mb would be much better than 16mb, guess not. Save 5 bucks by going with the SE.

Well the 640gb version of the SE always exceeded in write speeds and as the blacks came out it was just accepted they were faster because of the bigger cache, never looked at reviews.
