    I've got one Thermaltake that is nice and heavy, and one that is very lightweight and cheap. That's one brand that I would not buy over the internet unless I was familiar with the particular model. They've got some good stuff and some cheap stuff, like most PSU manufacturers...

    Quite a bit more, but I recommend the Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-450 ATX12V 450W Power Supply - Retail for $69 at Newegg.com

      NO way.Not enough wattage and Thermaltake has iffy testing procedures for that anyway. Not to mention you PS is on of the most important components in your PC, especially if it's high end. you need at least 500 watts(depending on the manufacturer, testing is unregulated so different manufacturers test at different temps) and a made by a nice reliable company. I suggest an OCZ Modstream 520 (thats what i have) or an Antec, Enermax, or if you really want something under a c-note, a fortron.

        Thermaltakes are made by a couple of different mnfg locations, and the quality tends to vary quite a lot.
        For a high end system, it really depends on your specific needs.
        SLI or no SLI,
        5V oriented or 12V oriented Mobo,
        You personal feelings on dual 12V PSU's

        For your average non-SLI 5V system (athlon XP level systems), I recommend this:

        http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104968

        For your average Non-SLI 12V systems (AMD64 level)

        http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104934

        But that is dual 12V, which is a personal preference thing as to wether or not it's any good.

        For SLI systems, especially if you're going nuts with 7800's, the only power supplies that can properly handle them are the PCp&C (PC power and cooling) 500+W specifically designed for SLI. These PSU's are widely considered to be the best in the market, but they are atleast 2x and usually 3x more expensive than any other PSU, so if you don't need it, don't bother.
        http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703001

        If you're SLI'ing smaller cards, then you'll be fine with a high-wattage non dual12V PSU.

        Almost twice as much as the one you listed, but What you really need to consider is that you're spending how many hundreds of dollars on top of the line CPU's, GPU's and then you're going to skimp on what powers them all? Also, the cheaper the PSU or the brand, the lower their surge protection ability is. If you get surged, you will most likely fry the rest of your PC. The better PSU's (Fortrons, Antecs, PCP&C, OCZ is becomming popular) will most likely just fry themselves.

        Hope that helps some.

            I was gonna mention PCP&C but i didn't want to kill anyone from sticker shock :D.If you don't want to spend more than $100 then you PC probably isn't high end enough to need a power supply that expensive.I'd go for the first PS i linked in my previous post($73 shipped). A little more expensive than the TT but way better quality overall.

              the 12v rail on that thing is 4 amps less than my enermax 300w. 420 watts is a joke.
