Well it depends on what your using it for, but the 5v and 3.3v put out 220watts together so that should be more then enough for pretty much any common system.

3.3v : 3.34
5v : 4.97
12v : 12.03

3.3v : 3.32
5v : 4.97
12v : 11.99

I dont really heavily monitor my voltages or anything, but so far my psu has worked flawlessly

But I would go with the power supply I purchased for the same price, more watts...all aluminum, VERY HEAVY, and dual fans, Im very pleased with it.

46$ shipped at newegg (Link at bottom of page)

Allied 450 watt psu and its 230watt combined(3.3 & 5) running:

1600+ @ 1.75ghz (195mhz fsb)
256megs ddr (195mhz)

30gig WD 7200

1 80mm / 84.1 cfm

Or you could go with a sparkle 350 watt psu, they are about the same price and are some of the best psu's ive ever seen. The 350watt model almost beats my 450watt allied.

Thanks for the advice. Not sure what I'm going to get but you helped narrow it down for me.
