I'm looking at the FSP400-60PNU-R1 at NewEgg for $65. My PSU is dying and from what I've seen, this is one that many people say is good. I have a price range of around $75 and wanted to know if this was the best bang for the buck. My system is in my sig, I do plan on upgrading the video in the next 6 months if I have the money.

agree with above , using the 350w , although the large
fan does get noticably louder under full load , its actually louder than the Antec true 430 under load
I recommend both , the fortron is less $

Well, I ended up going with a Thermaltake Xaser Silent Purepower 480W. Hopefully I'll be happy with this one as well. I thought that it might give me a little more power for future upgrades and it cost about the same as the Fortron. Thanks everyone!
