See if you can find the 400 Watt Fortron for 39.99 USD or the fortron 450 Watt 49.99 USD.

Both are really cheap and well built.

Check out this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817153023

It's cheaper, and it's a better brand.

I hate to Break the bad news to you, but TT is not a better brand.

TT Look flashy and such but on the inside they are Crap.

And If you Look Closely you will see that it Preforms Less then the two I posted about. The ones I posted also have Dual 12V rails as the one you posted does not. Sure its 30 More watts and costs the Same as the one of lower wattage I posted, but Wattage isn't everything and Its cheaper for a reason, Its a TT.

It all depends what the components of the System Are, But I wouldn't get the One you posted.

Look for Fortron or Enermax, they are resonably Cheap and good Quality.

Your will want AT LEAST a 450 Watt power supply, preferably 500 watts or even 550 watts. I don't know the Minimum for the 1600, But Im sure its more then 450 Watts.

Ok, I didn't see it, I just saw Sparkle, I guess Sparkles are rebranded Fortons or vis versa.

But you need AT LEAST 450 watts and Im not even sure on that.
