Welcome to AOA Forums, g0nd@i!

If the PS is for an AMD K7 machine, you might have a look at http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/...82_869,00.html . Just choose the processor you have that's in the box at the right of the page.

While there are exceptions, very inexpensive PS's are usually better left to the ignorant. In other words, lots of Wattage alone does NOT a good PS make.

What all do you plan on having the PS run?

We might be able to give you some suggestions, if you want them.
