    DO NOT buy that power supply. People always skimp on their power supplies the whole PC with them. Get a nice high quality power supply like a OCZ or Corsair or PC Power and Cooling.
    EDIT: Oh and Thermaltake.

    little too late but I doubt it will destroy my computer I can always get a refund, but considering I said I was broke when I bought the new processor since then I've bought 2 gig sticks and a heat sink and fan and a psu for 2 computers I'd much rather take my chances with that >30$ psu then go with the 90$ one. If it breaks or makes noise I will refund it, but there is a return policy

    Just obviously beware that myself and dozens of others on this forum have lost several hundred dollars when a cheap PSU broke or caught fire and damaged most of their components. Don't put it down to luck.

    You gave the correct warning, Sam. That's all you can do. You can lead a horse to water..............

    You can get a refund for your PSU, but do they refund the parts the PSU fries?

    I asked Qtec that question, their response:

    If their product destroyed half of my PC, why should I trust the business with what survived?
