Hello All,

I had recently had my generic ATX 235 Watt Power Supply go bad and I was wondering what the popular concensus was as to a reputable name of a power supply company. I am going to be running an Abit VP6 motherboard equiped with dual P3 800Mhz CPU's so I want to be sure that I am getting
a good quality product. I am aware that PC Power and Cooling has been mentioned on numerous occassions throughout the discussion groups but I do not have ready access to their products. I just wanted to know some of the other major players in the 'quality' power supply market. Please feel free to respond to me directly through my email address as I dont frequent the forums that often. Thanks in advance to all who reply.

I also have heard good things about PC P&C. I can't think of other brands off hand, but I would recommend you get at least 300W and an AMD certified power supply (even though you're using an Intel chip). The certification ensures that the power supply delivers a consistent voltage and amperage.

I'm sure pcpowerandcooling.com makes top-drawer power supplies. I buy their heatsinks and fans and nifty bits and pieces (like Molex connector covers), but I think Antec provides more "bang for the buck". I've got two of their 300 Watters.

P.S.: "Tracking the Topic" will notify you by email when someone makes a post to the thread. (Very convenient.)
