great PSU and if you want the rebate will knock another 15 Bucks off.

also, this Power supply will only fit if you have an ATX case and mobo.

If you mean by computer case, I have a antec case. Would this power supply still work?

Probably. ya I think antec only makes ATX cases, but I could be very wrong, its always better to check. Does your current power supply say anything like Micro ATx or ATX? Check to see if mobo says it also.

Alright, thanks. Any other problems it may be besides the power supply? I don't think it would be the ram or anything else if it just randomly shuts down.

well sure theres always a chance that its something else, but I would have no idea what it could be, maybe bad mobo, but right now PSU seems the most likely culprite..

Alright an update on this, I bought the power supply, an Antec 480W ATX 12v, I put it in last Friday and didn't have any shut offs until just now. I leave my pc on all day and night, I have 512mb od ram coming today or tomorrow, I always have about 10-20 programs open because I do web design. Can this be why it's shutting off? Maybe the ram will stop the shutoffs? Let me know what else it could possibly be.

Thanks,
Scott

Ok, I think your CPU is overheating or Components in general are overheating.

Download a program caled speed fan 5, and tell me all your temps.

Also what is your cooling setup

What CPU

What motherboard

what heatsink
