Thanks iammykyl I think I might get that one.

What do you all think about the brand FSP, it has slightly lower watts at 400W (which I like better, because I don't want to waste excess power that adds up over time). It has good ratings, but if it could have quality issues (or any other compatibility issues) then I'll just go with the Rosewill which of course has nice quality from many reviews.

FSP Group AURUM S 400W:

I would rather have one between 350W to 400W to save on power, but the Rosewill may be the safest for all the components based on good reviews.

I wonder what this is on the Rosewill: Active-PFC with auto AC-input voltage adjustment(100-240V)

http://www.rosewill....il_Overview.htm

It would be nice if PSU's could step down automatically if power usage never reached the higher Watt levels that they can supply.

But I'll likely get the Rosewill.

Mine does the same. It sense what voltage your house current is and adjust accordingly.

Gday.

Q. What do you all think about the brand FSP, it has slightly lower watts at 400W (which I like better, because I don't want to waste excess power that adds up over time).
A. The FSP is as good as the Rosewill, both will be OK for your system, Choice is up to you. A 1000w or a 500w only outputs as much power as the system requires, so a computer maxed out needing 400 watts will draw exactly the same watts from either PSU.

Q. It would be nice if PSU's could step down automatically if power usage never reached the higher Watt levels that they can supply.
A. They do, sort of step down, controlled by the amount of power sucked out of the PSU.




You are right to be concerned about your power bill and a good way to use less electricity, is to have the correct power profile set for how you use the computer.
Mine is in sue, off and on, all day and is only switched off when I go to bed.
So, with all work left open, I have, no screen saver, sleep the monitor after 5 minuets of no activity, Hibernate the computer after ten minuets of no activity.
screen wakes in 2 seconds, computer wakes in 11 seconds and away I go again.
