http://store.yahoo.com/directron/fsp55060pln.html Is a 550 watt Fortron that you want to stay away from…If you decide to go with Fortron get the P530XF530W that goes for 70.00 plus 5.00 shipping from newegg…The 550 and 460 Fortrons are for servers, dual xeon’s etc…The 480 Antec is a nice power supply…I have two 430’s and they have been great...Excellent power supply’s…Cant go wrong with the “True” series Antec’s…;)
