IIRC, MGE's are made by Youngyear. Not a very good PSU maker.

Look at the amperage ratings. 15A for 3.3v, and 17A for +12v. Only the 5v is decent at 35A. Even assuming that they are all independent of each other, they still don't add up to 450w, even with the 5v/2A standby.

yes, that did look low. i compared with my seasonic 300w and the seasonic seemed to have similar ratings. ok, i'll pass. what sort of ratings would be good to look for?

You don't really need that much, unless you intend to overclock heavy. Do you intend to do so?

what is your budget?

I'd go for something like a Fortron AX400-PN or AX450-PN.

Its stable and quiet.

I'm not an expert on this, but if his Seagate drive is SATA than wouldn't he need one of the newer PSU's with SATA connectors?

You are correct. The AX400 and AX450 both have dual SATA power connections.
