    BTW, these are the PSU brands which are available where I live:

    Enermax, HEC, Q-Tec and Antec.

    I think Enermax is the best, but itīs also the most expensive brand! Q-Tec models costs only half of the Enermax and Antec equally powerfull models, but the quality might not be very good! (?) : omg: :( Any ideas? :?:

    Personally I'd stick with Antec or Enermax cuz both are known to make very high quality PSU's :thumb: In my experience ur better off buying a high quality PSU thats rated somewhat lower, because it will probably be able to take a higher load than its rated, while a crappy generic PSU may not be able to support its rated load There's a good article at tomshardware.com comparing different psu's, i cant find the exact link though sry :cheers:

    i just did some rough calcs.

    you would be better off with the q-tec 450 than your current psu because you are over the limit that i use for a stable computer when it is under high load. if i were you i would get the q-tec at least 450 range, save $$$, but i am sure others would disagree with me. ( i am a cheap guy). for twice the money, it is not worth it getting those other psu's.

    I' running the A7N8X with an ATi 9700Pro (ll in Wonder) with an Antec 350W (two fans) PSU. I also have dual HDs and a pair of 256MB Corsair XMS modules in there, a single aft case fan (which always blows cool air ) and a TT 80mm on the CPU.

    I don't think i'm stressing the PSU with that setup....in fact, I ran another A7N8X and a 9700Pro with an Antec 300W (single fan) with no problems in a different system before with no problems.

    It's a good card and I recommend it.

    Yeah, I bought the card about two weeks ago and it works nice. :thumb: I asked from the store does my PSU give enough power and they said that the Enermaxīs models are able to deal quite big (extra) load. :) :) :thumb:

    your friends are correct in that your psu can handle the load but that psu will be running nearly 100% under full load and the psu will not last no where near the 100k MTBF. for a psu, you want to keep the load between 30% and 70% for longevity.

    Well, C_deck, if I can make some conclusion of my PSUīs automatically thermal adjustable fans, which are spinning max 2000rpm (scale 1000-3000rpm), my PSU isnīt running even near 100% load. (IMO)

    PS. if my PSU brokes, I can buy a new one! (over 400W) ;) ;)

    :cheers:
