i would not recommend getting a sparkle unless you have the best airflow possible within your case, mainly because they have very bad circulation with their low speed fan, the PSU can get hot to the touch (bad), thats why enermax, and antec psus are good, (antecs dont have dual fans, but they have sloted sides allowing air to flow through them easier, in which the sparkle does not)...if you want a 350 or 400 watt, look at enermax or antec

Let me put it this way, I have an Antec 403 and it has worked great ocing my 750 Duron to 1120, my 1.0 to 1.65, my 1.4 to 1.75, my xp1600 to 1.73. And that is all I know. Save of course for the ability to adjust the 3.3v and 5v/12v lines.

One more thing, it was able to put 2.38v to the T-bird 1.4.
