Not very good for the amd 64 bit, I would suggest either enermax or antec.

These 2 look to be a better choice out of the ones available to you.

ok guys! assuming the 420W isn't powerful enough i tried this:

disconnecting everything from the mainboard and PSU except the

1) Mainboard which hosts the PCI-E Graphics (Radeon x600XT 256MB), RAM, and CPU
2) One Hard Drive which has Windows Xp Home already

Boot-up the system runs fine, when i restart it won't start up again. The computer is running coz all the fans are going but nothing on screen.

To solve this i have to fully turn off the system from the wall, or reset CMOS. Doing this enables something to be showed up on the screen...

has anyone experience this before? do you think its my PSU? (its a pretty good one)
i'm having this feeling it could be the board itself, maybe corrupted cmos or something :(

I would check for a bios update also, then I would pull out one stick of ram and boot the system. But more then likely the 420
isnt strong enough.

ah huh! got it.. thanks wild child

it was actually the memory modules that screw up the system... installing two of them for some reason stuffs up the booting, now i'm just using one 512 module... these are non-branded RAM modules :( bur i guess" one pays for what one gets"

cheers!

Theres nothing wrong with the 420 Watt Tagans, the cream all other PSU's out there for performance. Im running a 3000+ @2.61Ghz with a SLi - DR a 6600GT and numerious hard disks and CD drives.
