Default Making sure for the PSU

Hey all,

I know the people here have a strong opinion of which PSUs to go with.
Mine is a CM and I know that it is not one of the good ones, so which are the good ones?
I currently have a 650W, might be looking for a 700W, so help me out please.

Cheers

Get a reputible brand with as many Amps on te 12Vs as you can afford.

Antecs are very affordable, yet high Amps, corsairs, seasonic, silverstone are too.

I recommend the Antec High Current Gamer series. Using them at the shop now since the one I purchased for my own use turned out to be so good for the price.
