Im looking to build a plexiglass custom case and want a small psu for my hardware. What is dual rail and would i really need it? would it help oc my dual core or should i be fine with my setup(on signature). Im looking to spend sub $60 bucks on the psu

and i want that active fcp i think it is, im proabably wrong but you know what im talking about. IM going to be moving this around a lot so i might encounter a bad plug or powerstrip

im newegging right now so please respond quickly if you could, thanks!

also i can use other forms besides atx right? as long as they have the 20 pin and 4 pin

Split rails is just split rails, it doesn't really add anything to a PSU besides safety features, and some would argue that a single rail PSU might be slightly better.

With that being said, it doesn't really matter. As long as you get a reputable PSU... OCZ, Forton, Antec, PCP&C, etc. Then you will be fine.

And as for the formfactor, if your case is ATX, then get an ATX PSU. 95% of cases are ATX, so thats probably what you need.
