Yay antec.. anyways, I can't find the reciept and I feel like I was ****ed on... these things got the best reviews and mine just craps out.. anyways, if you could please recommend a good psu.. i don't wanna go over like.. 110-115 really...

Antec is the best.

Send in your TruePower 550, and you'll get a new one for free. Seven months is still in the Warranty.

As long as they keep records on a computer (like they do in most cases), you can get another receipt from where you bought it. Antec has a three year warranty if I remember correctly.

If you can't get a receipt - then I don't know...

That ultra in his link looks yummy. If it comes with the UV round cables, i'll buy that. I don't really have input on Antec, I don't know that much about PSU's, but I do know I need a better one.

i'll buy another psu i could care less lol.. but I WILL blame them for giving me a psu that failed miserably nearly 3 months ago... it had a life of about 4 months total..

I wish I knew where I bought it from *coughs* lol.. I don't care really, I'll get a new psu anyways, and that one I posted looks like a dream psu! no mess! hehe.. who knows how good it is though =/

just ordered that tonight.....I suggest it hehehe =P and yeah, go to the website in which you bought the PSU you from if you got it from a website...usually you gotta have an account with them and you can print out an invoice...beyond that just contact antac manufacutering website and just get the RMA Request DOC and tell them your problem. My graphics card had a sticker on it that tells them when the year warrenty would be up...maybe yours might have the same?
