i sense Ste. coming here and saying TT suck and just die early

but for me i recommend TT. but i recommend antec over TT

antec>TT
OCZ=antec
pcp&c>antec
forton<antec=OCZ
pcp&c>all the other psu
enermax=antec>TT
aspire<antec<TT>everything else
coolmax raidmax etc < coolermaster
coolermaster<antec, OCZ, forton, TT etc.

i think that gives you some thing lol

can you give me system specs of this system
anyways i would recommend Antec Truepower to you, but if its like a secondary system or what not TT will be good for you

Right, So:

Pcp&c
Antec
OCZ
Enermax

Are better Than Thermaltake

Care to reccommend a particular PSU?

Athlon 64 3500
6800 GT ( and i never plan to run sli )

Might try some overclocking too

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817711002

Here's a good guide. And thermaltakes are in the "unrecommended" section.http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=792566
