500W psu - FSP or SilverStone? added: or Sparkle?

Post by The Black Pumpkin » Wed Mar 14, 2007 11:26 pm

FSP Group Blue Storm II 500W

-or-

SilverStone ST50EF-Plus 500W

What would you choose?

I'm going to be upgrading my dad's psu in time, and I'm looking at either of these two.

edit:

-or-

Sparkle 550W

I'd go with the corsair just because it has a 5yr warranty, and the silverstone only has a 1yr

Definitely the Corsair, buy it HERE, its cheaper...or HERE if you can stand buy.com. :P

I ordered one from buy.com and got free shipping and a $30 discount for getting their credit card...total damage $69.99. And, oh ya, on top of that, theres a $10 rebate, lowering the price to $59.99...not too shabby. I'll let you know how it goes.
