after some investigation (if you remember, ive been having problems with my graphics card) i belive i may need a new PS (im gona test my card at my buddys house next week). I've been looking for a power suply that i can afford ASAP, and ive decided on a 350 watt enermax (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103455). it has +12V@26A so im pretty sure it should be more than enough for my current system, whats your guys opinions?

That Enermax isnt bad, but I have one of these and its an amazing deal:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817103937

More than enough power for me right now, and its dirt cheap. I wouldnt advise buying anything under a 450W right now. If you ever upgrade, itl be very nice to not have to buy a new power supply.

Spend the extra $10 now. You wont regret it :)

Actually... its only a few dollars more. That enermax has $8.69 shipping. The Antec I linked to has free shipping. If you send in the $15 rebate its actually cheaper than the enermax. Plus its modular, so it keeps everything nice and tidy (and no, this doesnt cause power problems... my system is rock solid).

Get it :)

You cannot go wrong with Fortron, Enermax, Tagan, Akasa, Antec, Thermaltake and Seasonic.. Fortron BlueStorm has probably the best price/value ratio, and is very stable.

I have a Thermaltake Silent purepower 480W.

Pretty damn good PSU, and quiet :)

I had that Enermax PSU and it did it's job just fine... it's working happily now in my dad's pc..

Now i have one of the Tagan serie's and it does the job. Silent and power.

that has a pretty low 12V, the 350 watt (with 26A@12V)that I posted would probobly do a better job

Good call, its an excellent PSU. Mine has been rock solid and I even had my boss order one for a high end system build we had to do for a customer recently. They are deffinitely one of the best bang for the buck PSUs out now. They dont get much attention because of their low price, but they are really nice.
