Where should I buy an ATX power supply unit (PSU)?
« on: March 17, 2014, 08:46:16 PM »
I am in the market for an ATX PSU and was wondering from whom I should buy several of these?  TigerDirect?  Newegg?  Other?  Thanks very much in advance.  Trying to get all my stuff gathered together so I can go to SSCs this year.

I use Craigslist and look free pc's. The ones that don't work or have issues normally have a good power supply.

Make sure it is a single rail supply. 
I have used these.

And I have 4 of the same units.  Very nice PS.  Catch a sale and the price will come down.  I recall that I bought two units twice (during sales) and both times the total was right at $100 for 2 units with shipping included.
