http://ubuntuforums.org – I need to get a new power supply as my last one blew up and would like to get some recommendations. Personal experience is very welcome here, so if you've got a power supply that has been working for you for a very long time I would love to hear about it. My last power supply was an Antec and it lasted four years (it also took out my hard drives when it went), so I am not too keen on purchasing an Antec again, but maybe I just got unlucky with it as I hear that Antec is a good brand. At the time it was an $80 or $90 power supply, and I wish that it would have lasted a bit longer than it did. I purchases an Ultra for my brother's computer which seems to be really nice. But it is only a couple of years old, so it hasn't stood the test of time yet. I'm looking for something 600+ Watts. Brands? Specific models? Edit: Also, I found a couple on Newegg.com that looked interesting and at a low price, but I don't know much about the brands. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148041 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817822004 I've heard of Diablotek.
