    If buying brand new, I'd recommend a quality unit. That way, if the PSU isn't the problem, at least you'll have a great new PSu to use. If it is the problem and the PSU solves the issue, then you can be confident that you have a quality unit powering your system.

    My personal favorite brand for amazing PSU's is Corsair. Depending on your other components, for a HTPC a 400-450W PSU is enough. If utter silence is important to you the Corsair HX 520 is th quietest PSU I've ever heard running. It certainly beats other units marketed spacifically for silence. For example, the Zalman heatpipe cooled PSU's are way louder than the HX520/620. Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX 520W ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies $90 (after rebate is a bargain indeed)

    My setup also includes Asus Xonar HDAV 1.3 soundcard which use an additional power source. 1 SSD HHD and an 7200rpm HDD. After some use i get this wierd problems. Random freezes (Firefox mostly, flashplayer ie: youtube).
    When downloading i get error message saying that im downloading faster then the disk can write. I have a realy fast internet (100mbit), but still i think the disk should handle that.

    Is it my PSU who is causing this troubles?

    No, your PSU is plenty man enough for the job. If I can run a Q8200 OC'd to 3.4GHz with 4GB of RAM and an overclocked (725/1100 from 625/1000) HD4850 on an OCZ 400W supply with no issues then your quality 450W won't miss a beat.

    By all means test the system with another PSU if you wish. I'd also try using the system without the Xonar installed for a bit and see if the problem solves itself. Make sure to double check that you've disabled on board sound (Realtek Azalea Codec) and that the two sound devices aren't causing problems while fighting with each other.

    I advise the same, many sound cards have been known to cause random issues.

    As for your hard disk and download errors I have never seen that myself, but it very well could be the case? Not sure as my internet sucks

    What drive do you have, an older one? Just wonder as I have actually never heard of the issue and one would expect it to be common if this was the case with new drives and fast connections

    It worked! I disabled onboard sound, no more random freezes!

    The disk is a new "Western Digital CaviarŪ GreenPower™ 1TB Sata 3 Gb/s, 32MB Cache". But after reading up on newsleecher forum it seems that its a very common problem with fast connections and that particular program. Something to do with the way the articals are downloaded.

    Ahh, nice to see you got your sound fixed!

    I see about your downloads, ya I had no idea you meant only a certain program did it. I thought you had meant ANY download. That could be common as you say, since some programs encrypt as the download or download in certain ways that could slow things down.

    Ye, im sorry about that. I dident know that myself. Thats the only program which give me constant high speed over a long period of time. But since it only occured in that program, I figgured i better check their forum.

    Again, thanks for all the help.
