X-Connects arent great. Im speaking from experience, i own one. They do atually perform up to their rated wattage. If they only peaked at 350, my system would have shorted by now. They are okay, but they are not what we would consider quality PSUs. There are better choices out there

-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro

Well guess what, I own two. HAHA. But seriously, they are good for their price. Plain and simple.
