I'm not sure what kind of PSU to get for my friend's rig - it's a Q9300, Radeon 3850, one 160 GB hard drive, one optical drive.
I know to stick with solid brand names, and know that PSUs are not something to be cheaped out on, but budget is VERY tight here (these are all parts we had lying around) and I want to stick as cheap but workable as possible.
Its possible he may upgrade to my 4890 later, but being able to is not absolutly essential. Any tips would be great.
edit: most calculators seem to suggest I'll need between 350 and 400 watts. Any affordable "safe" brands? I know antec gets pretty good repute.
