Published on April 12th, 2011

Many of us tend to forget or overlook the importance of the Power Supply Unit (PSU) when we assemble or buy a personal computer. Sometimes we don’t even know what kind of PSU or what model or type of PSU that we need.

Most of the users/newbie enthusiast would just buy generic PSU as long as it has enough power or wattage to supply their computer. There are some users who have a high end rig that is built with quad core processor, high end motherboards, high end graphics cards, large memory and storage capacity but only uses a generic PSU. Do you think that kind of setup will survive? I don’t think so.

These are the common aspect that users tend to look when they buy a PSU:
1. price
2. Wattage
4. efficiency rating
5. Modular or non modular

But these are not just the things we need to look into when we buy a PSU. Remember your PSU is like the heart of your computer. Like our heart which supplies and distribute blood all over our body, PSUs distribute and supply power to your system.
