    My power supply has recently decided to start going out on me so I've been looking for a replacement. I've been having problems deciding on a good one to power my system. Please send me any recommendations or links, thanks. I want to spend less than $100.

    System:

    Athlon xp 2600+
    1gb corsair ram
    radeon 9800 pro
    (2) WD 80gb hdd
    (1) maxtor 200gb sata
    (2) dvd roms
    audigy 2
    6 fans and lights

    I'd go with at least a 500 watt supply. Try www.pricewatch.com

    That's what I have been looking at lately. I saw some Thermaltake 480w's as well as a few Antecs. Are the Ultra X-connects any good? How about the Rosewill ones?

    Antec's... I have two 1 year old cases with the silent 380watt PSU's, both purchased a week apart from different vendors and both are going. Not a happy camper with Antec right now.
