  1. does anyone know or have a good reliable psu (550w or so) with a native 24pin mobo connector. im gonna get this dfi lan party mobo and its highly recommended to have a 24pin and not a 20 with an adapter so ive been looking around but all i can find are the adapter ones and really expensive ones. im looking to drop at most $150. much thanks as always.

    also needs to be pcie compatible and sli and sata and other goodies

    planning on putting in a evga 7800gtx KO if newegg ever gets it back in stock.

    This one seems really nice for the price.

    (unsure if this has pci-e power).

    I think all three are ok.
    Many times the graphics card comes with a molex to pci-e power adapter, so the psu wouldn't necessarily have to have the pci-e power connectors, as the card may come with the adapter. Also some cards use a molex instead of the pci-e power adapter.

    Or for a little more money(although it's out of stock).

    This is what you want. Best PS on the market. Quite as a mouse, plug-in connectors, loads of protection. :slurp:

    I just bought the 450W version. It looks great with the blue light fan, extremely quite. The cables will even glow blue with a UV light accessary kit.

    thanks for the ideas mates. kirock i looked that specific psu and was actually going to purchase it but its an adapter one and i was really looking for a native one. i might just hold off on building this baby since i just read that amd is going to be releasing their 65nm chips next month and i might just wait for those or a nice price drop on their current lineup
