wow.

Like i said before, the psu is fine and will last a long time.

Its manufactured by Seasonic, the oem which also makes corsair power supplies which are some of the best on the market. i dont know why you keep trying to beat this down into the ground. The Earthwatts line and Antec have proved themselves to be very reliable and efficient psu's.

No, you don't always need to have a modular power supply, just use good wire management. The system the op listed wont use even half the rated capacity so he doesnt need to spend more money for another. The Earthwatts line and other Antec power supplys have shown to operate well and last long at over 75% of their rated load. The power supply has 36amps...thats more than some 600watt psu's.

That definitely more than my 500W seasonic s12 which as two 12v rails at 16 and 17 amps...

But my new PC Power and Cooling buts it to shame... 60 amps on 1 rail.

Hey again all:

I wanted to ressurect this thread to ask yet another question:

The graphics card I was going to migrate over from my old computer died on me last week. Now I'm contemplating a new card to fit into the new system.

Will the

EVGA 512-P3-N954-TR GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N954-TR GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Fit... and work within the constraints of the power supply?

EVGA, free shipping, and AWESOME performance. Great price for what the 9600 GT is actually capable of.
