    OK cool just to let you know ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, and Foxconn are the best brands. Stay away from ECS, Biostar, Jetway, DFI. ASROCK isn't that bad either a little on the cheap side but decent quality.

    The Powercolor that you posted most of that brands cards are terrible. Good brands are XFX, MSI, Sapphire, HIS, Gigabyte, and ASUS.

    Come on fatback! Sure its not a good psu by our standards but, to say that it wont work on a 10yr old pc is just RIDICULOUS.

    Hehe maybe but I like to get the point across I don't wont them to think it might be ok I wont them to be scared of it:D. I would gladly take a 500w Corsair over a 1000w Apevia.

    I'm not given false info Apevia power supplies are crap I know because I just got rid of one:good:. Its that exact one but with the UV blue shell. It wouldn't power my system and this was before I got my 4850 and was using onboard graphics. I even RMAed it and the second one did the same thing.

    Just because you had a bad run in with them doesnt mean everyone will. Catch my drift?

    Anyone lets stop arguing about it and stick on topic

    I've had an Apevia PSU for a couple years and it's been rock solid.
