Default PSU Question

Quote:
Ignore

Ignore,

When I was building mine ....

Loads of people said don't get a 350W it wont handle:

- AMD 3000+ Venice

- 512MB X 2, Corsair RAM

- Asus 6600GT

Anyway I was told to go for a 480+ so I thought I'll give the 350W that comes with the case a shot.

It's been running for 2/3 weeks nicely!

(Guess it anit that bad)

Oh 'n' by the way it's a Seasonic 350+ came with the Acric T1!
Well I read this and the first thing that came to mind was that the PSU would eventually fail and take all the components with it. I'm getting an Aspire X-Navigator that comes with a PSU. I am about $40 away from my budget MAX but i can get a PSU if it is necesary (though i don't really want to )
Any help would be appreciated

PSUs will often work fine when get them, and then die a month later. the PSU is a cricitcal component which u shouldnt scrap on.

That setup does not require alot of power, and seasonic makes a good PSU, so I'm not TOO surprised.

I would still be wary when buying PSUs. IMO, only get them from PCP&C, Antec, OCZ, Thermaltake, and Ennermax. As for Silverstone, i have never used one, nor do i know anybody who has one, so i cant offer any opinions on them

the seasonic should work fine

they're probably second best to PCP&C, or they might be even better than them..dunno
