I was thinking about getting this: http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item2eaf840867
Would this work well?

These are my specs:
- AMD Athlon II X2 255 Dual Core (3.0 ghz)
- MSI 785GTM-E45 Motherboard (with integrated HD Raedon 4200)
- 2 gb ram
- Diablotek Raedon HD 4850 512mb
- 2 Hard drives (a WD Caviar Blue and a generic samsung slimline)
- 2 generic dvdrw drives (one slimline).
- Two 120mm fans (both LED).

Hi Shadownken17 :)

You did not say what make and model of PSU you have.

Is there something wrong with it? Why do you want to change it?

Im building a new computer, but the PSU that comes with it is a no-name generic PSU. (In other words, it complete crap. Like a bootleg power supply)

That ebay one you linked to looks horrible! Don't touch!

What is your budget for a PSU?

That PSU is not 80% certified and can't see a brand name. don't buy.


These PSU > http://www.newegg.co...E17-371-015-S01 Have more power than your current build needs but, allows additions and upgrades or used in a bigger new build.

This link is to your motherboard main page > http://www.msi.com/i...o=&prod_no=1883 *************************************************************

Sorry about that, had the above ready to go last night. Uploaded before looking at the topic.
