    What is the best PSU for under $100?

    Let's please hear some opinions. The rig this is for is the one in my sig, but it will have 2 DVD drives, another HD, and WC. I will run the CPU @3.6 until I can afford a better P4.

    Definately one of the FSP units. Either the 530w or the AX500-A.

    How could you go wrong with this model? Also the 550W is a monster, When I say it's a monster, it really is

    Too late, already ordered the 530. It is the right price, too.
