Default Thermaltake Purepower 460w, best for limited budget?

I'm refurring to this PSU,--Here--

I was wondering if it would be a good purchase, and the best PSU in the price range. If it preforms good, it would look kick *** in my case. Cables are already sleaved and everything.

It will deffinently have enough power. My computer, is sadly, getting outdated . Whatever though, thats a whole different story. I should be getting a check from work tomorrow, so I could buy the PSU soon.


Its getting hard to pay for all my stuff, lol. This and the xbox both like to beat me up and take my money out of my wallet. Just got into modding the xbox though..

Thanks for any input,

Travis.

Depends on what ur trying 2 power...a system might require more than 460 watts

Thermaltake PSUs are very good

I've heard good things about Thermaltake PSU's. Top three I believe. Might as well get it, especially if it will look awesome in your case.

Yea, I hear they are good. There a big name, so none of that garage company stuff, lol.

Anyone have ACTUAL experience with this PSU? Everyones opinion is welcome, just experience with this would be killer.
