    Stumbled over this tonight. I think it is a pretty sweet deal and it seems to have a ton of good reviews. :dunno:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817153023

    I am running...

    3000+ AMD64 939 @1.94
    7900GT XFX
    2 HDD
    2 optical drives
    1GB RAM

    MY current PSU is a Sparkle 300Watt.

    Also I will be upgrading the CPU in the near future so would it be OK for dual core?

    It isn't much of an upgrade.

    Really? :eek3:

    It says 430 Watts... What makes it worse than the one I already have?

    Yeah but you should have more then 300w for that system... Find another one, like OCZ power stream is nice. And the coolermaster ones work great.

    guys, a 300W sparkle is GUARANTEED to bench test at more than 300W.
