"Best Bang for the Buck for Older Systems"

These PSU's were designed for older systems where the CPU is often powered from the +5V rail.
However these still provide enough +12V amperage to run most of today's lowend to midrange systems.

"Best Bang for the Buck Multi-Rail PSU's"

Multi-Rail Recommendations:

Some very highly respected PSU brands have thrown the old, outdated ATX/EPS PSU specs "out the window",
and are offering some excellent PSU's with 2 or more +12V rails, that do not suffer from the problems of the past, we are proud to present them for your consideration.
