Pros: Big (for an average user), quiet, a better value (price/size) than the 250 gb model.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High performance for a great price.
Cons: Windows Vista gives it a performance index of 5.1/5.9. Dunno what that's worth, though.
Other Thoughts: I used Tomshardware.com for a performance chart on tons of different processors, then cross-checked that against the processors' prices on Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: nMEDIAPC Mute Power MP-500 500W ATX12V Power Supply
Pros: Quiet, burly enough to run a mid-level gaming machine, supposedly efficient and reliable.
Cons: Doesn't tell you the total combined amps on the +12V rails. I must claim ignorance on whether or not this is important.
Other Thoughts: This is my first build, and I went around and around about what PSU to get. There's a lot of good advice in Newegg's learning center, but one thing that gave me hell was trying to figure out the total amps on the +12V rails (which are listed as 15A and 18A, respectively). The learning center says that you can't necessarily just add the two numbers together to get the total, because the actual total might for some reason be less than that number. Yet the total is never listed in the specs for this PSU, anywhere. On top of that, the guy on my mobo's tech help line heard me say "15A on +12V1" and said that this PSU wouldn't work with my mobo (ASUS M2N). But he was kind of a yutz, and I didn't really believe him. In the end, I trusted reviews that said this PSU would work in a gaming system. It does so far.READ FULL REVIEW
