LOL

check to see if you can get an OCZ StealthXStream or the Corsair 520hx or something for that price..
I want to stay away from OCZ because of ripple. And the 520HX only supplies 40 amps and it's like $112 ($90-something with mail-in-rebate, but I don't like MIRs) The price difference is not that great. I'm just saying that, if I'm willing to pay $130 for a power supply, what should I be getting? The Antec Neopower seems pretty good to me. 650 watts, modular, 57 amps, triple rails and it's Antec... Like, I really don't want to worry about power supply for a long while, and leave tons of options, I might get multiple HDDs and optical drives in the future, maybe even SLI 9 Series and octo-core, god only knows...

uhh.. noooo... it's 54A on paper, but only supplies 40A continuous, I've looked into this in great detail. It only uses up two rails and a partial amount of the third rail to achieve a max of 40A. I think it's because it's based on the same platform as the 620HX or it's to increase efficiency in some way, I'm not entirely sure.

hahaha, alright, it's gone, but you should really familiarize yourself with Internet sub-culture and humor. I used to be a big YTMNDer myself and know pretty much all the internet fads and memes, such as NEDM, OVER 9000, Don't taze me bro', NooooooooooOOOO, McFlyyyyyyyyyy, Brian Peppers, I believe you have my stapler, Pool's Closed (Habbo raid), O RLY/YA RLY, Picard, ... so many..

You should really check out 4Chan, YTMND and Encyclopedia Dramatica, the Internet shock/humor sub-culture is so amusing.

and the one in my sig was the "Imma chargin ma lazar!!!" / "Shoop da whoop" fad. It's a tad racist, but funny as heck. IT all originated from this pic:



and those two kids dancing came from some other video that got popular on the internet
