    Ok my so called 300W psu died today... :rolleyes2 so im looking to buy a new psu ASAP, i jsut got back from a local store and the PSUs they had were the Thermaltake 420w Silent PUREPOWER PSU 420 and the ENERMAX 450W(i think its one of the Fanmonitor series) one they were for the same price so I would like some advice on which would be better to buy, or maybe some other company would be better like Aopen or what ever, price to spend is about $140CDn. O the system i would like to use it in is atm 1ghz p3, gf4 4400, 2hdd, burner, dvd, sb live, lan... now i would like to upgrade to something in the near future so which one should i go for??:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    ok i got the enermax EG465P-VE works so far and voltages seem to be a bit more stable paid 100CDn for it. On another note opening my old PSU showed that one of the Capacitors exploded and another one leaked and there are rust looking stains on it... well 2 years it lasted
