    Hi.. I need a little help.. i have about $50 to spend on a powersupply.. so here is what i found for my two options..
    1. Enermax 350watt with dual fan (1 fan on bottom)
    2. Deer 400watt with single fan
    I am going to run a AMD Athlon XP 1900+ on a asus mobo with a powerfull vid card, 2 hard drives, 2 cd drives, and up to 10 fans and other mods later like lights or whatever.. so which powersupply would be better? The one with the dual fan or the one with the more power or what brand is better.. or whatever.. basically which one does everyone think i should get? Thanks..

    Power Supply Rec

    I have just installed a Mercury 300Watt Power supply..! Several of my friends have switched from the standard 240Watt to this one and none have reported any problems

    Wattage ain't everything

    I'd go the enermax as it is a very solid and stable powersupply, able to deliver large stable amounts of power while still helping airflow in the case.

    Another thing to rememeber is that Wattage isn't everything!!

    I agree with APK , i have run less than 400 and had burn outs....

    Personally i would go the 400

    you cant have to many watts :D

    i have heard good things about Deer supplies too, just make sure you have good case cooling
