...make any difference in the preformance of the computer? whats the best one on the market atm?
Performance, probably not but stability certainly... on that note I need a new one
Absolute best would be the PC power&cooling 1100w, that thats £300.
Seasonic 600w and the enermax liberty PSUs are very good but around £100 for the top models.
It can make it quieter, more stable and last longer.
If a high end PSU blows up, unlike a cheap one, it has a protection circuit in it so only the PSU gets damaged, not blowing everything connected to it up.
Depends how much money you want to spend, as the top PSU's for consumers are £400.
/EDIT: we really do reply to some threads too quickly in case central
I don't really think there is any need for a 1100w PSU lol.
Realistically look at what a PC actually uses, and i'd call that slightly overkill.
At least for your average user anyway. :s
Quad SLi, overclocked FX-60, 4gb ram, 4x raptor HD in raid... thats when you need the PC P&C 1100w
I bet you could run that on a lower PSU then a 1100w mate.
ok i know this will sound so stupid like but i want a PSU that looks nice and really cool any of those one any good though?
Run the PC stable, without really needing to ever worry about it going wrong then its that PSU.
You COULD run that rig on a Qtec, but I would not want to.
The Hiper PSU's look good, but I personally hate them.
like the 'Ultra X-Connect 500W ATX2.0 Cable Detachable PSU - Titanium with UV Blue (CA-005-UX)' it looks good but is it good?
Tagan Modular PSUs look brilliant mate and they are very very good.
Thats my opinion though, but saying that, I doubt you will find a bad word about them.
i really like the 'Ultra X-Connect 500W ATX2.0 Cable Detachable PSU - Titanium with UV Blue (CA-005-UX)' http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Ultra_X.html is it good
They arent very good unless they are the newer version with the flat cables
Tagan, Seasonic, Antec, Enermax are usually good solid makes.
My vote would go with either Tagan or Seasonic. I persoanlly have a 480W Tagan U01, and its stable, realiable, quiet and its black.. what more would one want in a power supply, well apart from it being modular, which I really could do with(Damn P180)
