    6.99 500W PSU

    I might pick me up one since it's only $7 after rebate.

    Yup I just ordered one. Doesn't have dual 12v but for $7 after rebate it can be put to some use. It would be better with free shipping, but that would be too much of a good thing.

    I'm sure skou will be along shortly to tell you about the Ultra products, but keep in mind you get what you pay for. in fact, with these PSUs, you get less than you pay for.

    There is no way I would put this a PSU I got for $7 on my main rig. I bought it for a computer I am building out of spare parts. I just posted it in case someone is doing the same. When I receive it I will post my thoughts. Thanks for your warnings though. They are much appreciated.

    I'm actually thinking about picking this up too, to use as a 2nd PSU to power my fans and pump. Decisions, decisions....

    OH my God... not that thing... NOT THAT THING!!!
    Last time I used one of those it burnt out my AMD 3000, a nvidia 5400 and 512meg of ram... it shot out a huge white bolt and a mushroom cloud of smoke.
    And I only used it for about 5 mins as a temporary... At least the explosions were amusing...

    it isn't worth it if they paid you $7.00 to take the power supply

    Why not, just dump the power supply in the bin and keep the 7 dollars!

    because you have to wait for 6-8 weeks for them to ship your $40?
    So you lose ~2month worth of interest on $40.

    Scott, thanks for the vote of confidence! Although, sometimes you DO get more than you pay for. You get the opportunity to build a new rig, and get to see flashing lights and firehoses,

    Update,

    There is a new section in Woot's Forum, and they are listing the Ultra X-Connect for $0.00 after rebate, from RatShack. If it had free shipping, and the price was $0.00 retail, with no rebate, I still wouldn't get any.

    Oh, you need to go over to Woot, and see what some OCF member posted there.
