Power Supply

The new power supply came in yesterday. It worked VERY well. That PC is dead quiet now, except for the hard drive spinning. Yes, I can hear the little swish of the hard drive spinning.

Even using my test bed Guild Wars, the machine stays cool and quiet. Very, very nice.

Add in a little shipping and sales tax, and we'll call the new PC $600. I could have scraped off $40 by not buying the silent fans that I did not need. Who knew that it would be this cool?

The DVD-RW turned out louder than I liked. When/if it gets replaced, I get a quieter one. If I need a new video card, you can select "fanless" from the list of NewEgg's video cards.

See the Spreadsheet.
