    Recently found out... after long "investigation"... that my PSU is not dead but dying.
    My question is...

    I need to buy a PSU tomorrow so... What companies make good PSU's?
    Ive found out so far that OCZ, Xion, Hiper, Thermaltake, Xcio make good ones.

    My computer specs power wise...
    Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
    Dell Dimension 4700
    Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.40GHz
    2038MB RAM
    ATX-305 305w "Dying/Near Death"
    DVD Drive
    DVD/CD Burner
    Floppy Drive
    80g HD
    PNY GeForce 7300 GT 256MB PCIe with a Iceberq 5 Heatsink
    Network Adapter Card

    I'm buying a PSU tomorrow, within the $0.01-$49.99 range online.
    Been browsing Newegg and eBay and some other websites for PSU and narrowed it down to this and this.
    Anyone have any suggestions on something else I should take a look at?

    -Thanks, and sorry if in the wrong section.

    I can tell you now, quality PSU can cost you a pretty penny.

    I am currently looking at a enermax 500W PSU that costs about $100, just to give you an idea.

    Since you have a 305W now, look in the 400W range. That should be enough power. those would then have a higher quality than the 500W you are currently looking at if in the same price range.

    The only reason why i am telling you this, because i don't what this new one to last 1 year or less, and die.
