I've only heard one person's view on sparkle, but they said it died on him.

basic rule is that if it isnt antec, OCZ, thermaltake, ennermax, or, at least in my case, ultra (my X-Connect is great!), it sucks

'nuff said.

Hey, nevermind about the enermax, my uncle said we're getting an Antec True 430 watt power supply, so I think I've been hooked up now.

Go with Antec. I've had bad experiences with Sparkle.
