    Hey dudes,

    Wish I'd of found this site a couple of months back, would of saved me some time and money :)

    Anyway I bought a pc a couple of months back and all the components are good apart from the psu. It's a Atrix 650w 500T and it's noisy as hell, but i don't really know which psu would be best to replace it with. So just wondered if anyone could give me a few suggestions.

    Here's my spec:

    INTEL® PENTIUM® D 950 (2 X 3.4GHZ) 800mhz FSB/2 x 2MB Cache

    2048 MB CORSAIR DDR2-533 PC4200 (2x1GB)

    ASUS® P5WD2-E PREMUIM: DDR2, x16 slot, 975X chipset, 3 PCI

    SATA 74 GB HARD DISK @ 10000rpm 8mb cache

    SATA II 500 GB HARD DISK @ 7200rpm 8mb cache

    SATA II 500 GB HARD DISK @ 7200rpm 8mb cache

    16x +/- DVD WRITER (8x +/- Dual Lyr)

    INNO3D 256MB GEFORCE 7900GT PCI Express

    120mm fan & Gigabyte neon CPU Cooler

    Thanks in advance

    Billy ;)
