I used to work at Fry's and we sold plenty of 'em without problems. So, depending on what you feel, you could go with one. Personally, though, I would use an Antec PS.

Hmm.. If you where to say, only plug in a few drives - say 1 dvdrom/cdr - 1 harddrive, and don't use a gf4 ti4600 or a radeon 9700ish video card .. then you'd be ok. Outside of that, I vote crap.

yeah i'd say crap too. they come free with some antec/chenming/chieftec cases so i wouldnt buy them separate seeing as those some of those cases arent that much. i guess they're okay to use if you buy the case but dont buy them separately.

Most psus that come with cases outside of antec are garbage. Just go out and buy a good quality one and throw outt the one that comes with the system. When you pay $50 for a case with a psu, you know that the psu did not cost much. I do not trust my system with a cheap psu, it is worth it to get a good one.

Just get a good Antec or Enermax PSU of at least 350 watts and be done with it. I would actually recommend getting a minimum of a 400 watt PSU just to be safe and to give you some breathing room now and down the road.
