Ok, going to take the plunge and upgrade my wifes desktop in desperate need of a new power supply.
Here are my questions for you guys.
1) What is, in your opinions the minimum to shoot for when it comes to wattage? What would be a good value that will last a while. 500w supplies are pretty cheap but most new video cards require 500w. I want a wattage amount that will be good for maybe 2 more generations of video cards but can't break the bank.
2) Ease of install. What is a good brand that someone like me who has never installed a new power supply can purchance and have a easy enough time to put it in. I have been reading up on the subject online and it does not look impossible but is there any brand that takes no technical knowledge out of the box?
Thanks guys, I come to you all all the time with questions and all the time you guys know your stuff better than most.
