I dunno about compatability but here's something I ran acrosst,
I dunno about here, but Rosewill seems to have a rep that gets pooh-poohed a lot...I noticed tho that on Newegg the customer
reviews seem to be pretty good. I was a little skeptical till I hit up
and read what he did to a rosewill and the stuff he put it thru.
Pretty impressive IMHO, especially for the price.
A big part of how
much power you need is based on your video card, which doesn't draw that much compared to say, an 8800 series.
A friend of mine
runs an 8800GTX OC card off of..*gasp* 480W. Do I think he's nuts? yes. but it works. (longevity in question IMHO)
I went with a 550W Rosewill, the same as your save it's the older version. Kicking myself over that now...why I didn't see the newer one.
anyway. I'll post a review of my rosewill when I get it...imho,
you should be ok, but there's a lot smarter guys on here then I.
A lot of ppl like OCZ. There's a reason for that. A lot of ppl like Antec. But I've read Antec reviews where ppl didn't swear BY their antec, they swore AT their Antec. Everyone has an opinion,
But the reviews I've read on Rosewill convinced me I was ok to get one.
Of course having that extra power won't hurt if you ever wanted to go SLI, or as you posted, upgrade the video card.
just some thoughts from one noob to another
in spirit of good noobliness.
