Default good PSU thats sub-$50

hey all

i am making a new rig (s939 athlon 64 3000+, 1gb pc3200 ram, 9600xt).

anyways i am getting a raidmaz case that comes with a PSU but those are usually low quality so are there any good PSUs that are under $50??? i want it to be around 420w as i will probley upgrade my video card eventually..

raidmax cases usually come with raidmax PSU's. Raidmax PSU's are of good quality and dont need to be changed. I've had mine for a while now with zero problems. i think that the raidmax PSU's are rated at 430watts depending on what they give you with the case

^^my stock Raidmax PSU (420w) does quite well with my setup in my sig, never had a problem, so i agree with SHAWN.

But if you really want a "good" PSU, spend the 100 bucks and pick up an antec.
