The Earthwatts has 3, but you're over £50 at that point. In the context of the rest of the system cost, I think it would be daft to spend more than £50 on the PSU, so I'd stick with the Corsair CX430 which is stupidly cheap and seems to get universally good reviews. It's also powerful enough to withstand an upgrade to a mid-range graphics card down the line.

Indeed, typical home users still don't need more than 2GB - and that was with Vista, even.mikeymike wrote:My customers get to choose what goes in their computer. I haven't seen a Win7 64 system for the average uses of a computer go over 1.5GB RAM usage. My own PC has 4GB and the only time I've seen it go over 1.5GB RAM usage is when I'm playing a recent-ish 3D game. However, due to the current DDR3 prices, I suggest to customers that it makes more sense to upgrade it now as the price is unlikely to get any lower (unless Win8 needs 8GB RAM or something), and a RAM upgrade at a later date would also cost in terms of labour.
On point yet again. Seagate is not my favorite, but ALL of our machines here at work - Dells - have Seagate drives in them and not a single one has failed. Now, 30 machines is a small sample size, but the fact still remains. We're talking about machines from 2006. Point is, Seagates are anecdotally no less reliable than anything else.As for Seagate drives, which is the perfect drive in your opinion? In recent years I've had one Seagate desktop drive fail out of quite a lot fitted (probably as many Corsair PSUs I've fitted, given that I sometimes need to replace failed disks in PCs that I didn't build). If you've only got anecdotal evidence to throw in against Seagate, what's the point? I'm sure there'll be as many people on this forum who swear by Seagate as those who swear at Seagate
