    What type of PSU are you getting? I would MAKE SURE you use a reputable brand like enermax.

    Before you buy that Coolermax psu, Take a look HERE You will see that the Coolermax brand is on the psu`s to avoid list.

    As poertner quite rightly says, make sure you get a good psu by a reputable maker, Either Enermax, or Antec etc.

    A good quality psu is one of the most overlooked parts in a pc.

    You only have to look at the threads on these boards to see how much trouble a cheap psu can cause.
