I recently purchased a bunch of parts from zipzoomfly.com, and i think they may have cheated me out of $70. I bought the Asus A8V-Deluxe, and the Thermaltake Xaser III lanfire, which comes with Silent PurePower 420w. The customer service at Zipzoomfly said that this PSU didn't have the right connectors, and that i would need to purchase another one. I dont understand what he meant by this, because upon reciving this PSU i realized it had a 20 pin rail with a 20 to 24 pin converter. So instead I purchased Enermax Noisetaker 420w. Overall it looks like the enermax is a better psu, but it kinda skimps on the rails, whereas the thermaltake realizes that you need many rails for all the fans and other odds and ends as well as for other stuff, and offers a bunch of rails. which part should i keep in the 'puter?

well i know that enermax makes really good power supplies but ive also heard from people in this forum say that thermaltake power supplies are good too. maybe certain models but i dont know which thermaltake models are good.

hmm......maybe the customer serice personel didnt know that the thermaltake power supply didnt come with 20pin to 24pin converter. i bet he/she knew that the thermaltake power supply that came with the case only though that the power supply is a 20pin and you needed a 20pin to 24pin converter.

I'd second custserv's suggestion and go with the Enermax.

Enermax, Antec, PC Power and Cooling($$$$) or OCZ are the brands you need to know for power supplies. in the second tier of quality are the likes of thermaltake and forton and so fourth.

Thermaltake has been solid for me as well, I'm still using a 420w PurePower now going on 2 1/2 years or so (currently in a 3.2C system).
