I am trying to get my old core 2 E8400 system up and running to give to my mom, she is not at all computer savy and I cannot afford extra costs at this time. She is going back to complete her schooling to be a drug and alcohol counselor, having had a nasty time trying to payoff osap and such for the past 10 years, I want to do something nice for mom as she has done so much for me and my brothers and keeps getting the crud end of the stick.
It will be an E8400 EO, P5Q-E,4gb 1066 Gskill ram, an Asus Sata optical I have kicking around, my "old" WD Black 640 drive, the parts I am missing are Case (still unsure) cables, power supply, and gpu. I simply do not have the ~$200 CAD for the missing stuff and she needs it for going back to school in January.
I think this power supply would fit the build extremely well, being modular will help keep it clean to prevent dust bunnies which mom does not clean often, but most importantly, it will have Antec performance and durability to make sure this system serves her as well as she has done for many people over the years, thanks so much for the chance [H] and Antec.
I have and still run Antec power supplies,my backup machine has a Antec 850 Quattro. I bought it because of the review on [H] and I am just amazed that it still is running. I don't question who to buy on power supplies, because Antec has been solid since my first one in 2002.
My trusty Antec True Power Trio 550 is still kicking so i dont need this, but i am building a new rig for my son, he is currently serving in the National Guard as an MP. We have a case, and some other components, but no PSU yet. This would be perfect for his new rig just in time for Christmas.
