    best deal for PSU under $80.00

    My buddy has a 2400+ oc'd, 120 gig wd, dvd burner and a gig and a half of ram.
    We just got him a 9800xt for his bday, and Im looking for a psu to power it as cheap as possible, but still strong and stabl. I want to up his clock some more with it.
    What are the suggestions?
    Looking at perhaps antec 430, tt420, etc...

    Can you do wrong with that?

    EDIT: Apparently you can! Good thing I'm not a 'power user.'

    yes the new x-connects are terrible. Look for your antec's sl-450, true blue 430, maybe if your lucky a blue storm fortron, or maybe another fortron/sparkle variant.

    I got this Fortron fsp400 and it's fantastic.It has has a better 12volt line than my Antec true power 430.It comes in two flavors.One with a black fan and the one that Ihave has a blue led fan.

    If you look around in the cyber deals section there has been a couple of links to Fortron AX-500A Blue Storm supplies for $69. This is the best supply at the $89 mark, and is overwhelmingly so at $69.

    A Fortron 530W can be had for ~$80 It's a good PSU.

    I vote for the fortron bluestorm over it, 69 free shipping for that beast is a snag. It will power that system no problem
