Haha, nice recommendation ibbonkers. That was exactly what I thought I was going to recommend when I saw the title of this thread, lol, so obviously I second that. Excellent PSU. I recommended that to a guy that was building a $2000 PC and he's very happy with it.

Antec is just as good, and is cheaper. No need to go with the OCZ.

yeah I do, sorry I didnt see this post sooner. My aim is IseeJordn.

I ended up going with a Vantec iON2, 460w with a 30a 12v rating.
