Have you heard the story about Forgetful Fred? The poor sap married Ingrid the Impatient, a terrible match for his forgetfulness. They were both computer enthusiasts, so when Black Friday and Cyber Monday came around, they went into a clicking frenzy and stocked up on parts left and right. When the parts arrived, Fred realized he had forgotten to order a power supply, and being the impatient type, Ingrid encouraged him to use a generic PSU they had lying around in the basement. "Hey, this thing's light as a feather!," Fred bragged. Had he done his research (or remembered what happened the last time he chose a cheap PSU), he would have known that weight is sometimes an indication of quality, and lighter PSUs tend to be junk. "Just install it already," Ingrid demanded. Fred did as she said and together they pieced the rest of the system. As Fred went to flip a coin to see who would have the honor of turning it on, Ingrid the Impatient flipped the switch and to both their horror, there was a loud pop followed by a billow of smoke. Not only the did the PSU go belly up, so did the motherboard and CPU. Don't follow in Fred or Ingrid footsteps. The PSU is every bit as important as any other component, and if you're looking for a good one, check out today's top deal for an Antec TruePower Classic Series 750W Power Supply for $90 with free shipping (normally $140; additional $30 mail-in-rebate).
