Is there a limit to how many times you can use the $20 off $50 google checkout?

You have to logged out of your buy.com account to use google checkout.

Any opinions as to which PS is better, Ultra X-Finity 500 Watt or this one?
Yeah I know the power rating is different.

I just bought this for $100 at Best Buy yesterday. It's already installed or I'd take it back!

I'd say for 100 bucks, probably Seasonic is better choice. but for this price Trio is excellent.

I have one very important question concerning google checkout and buy.com. I am pretty sure everything is good to go but would like to get confirmation from the good peeps of anandtech :).

The rebates will still work with google checkout right?

The Trio is built by Seasonic, which makes this pretty hot.....

Capacitors are OST RLP with the main cap being Hitachi. On top of that a 5 year warranty and great Antec service. I really don't think you can go wrong for $65........:thumbsup:

It's true they are built by Seasonic but every source I checked concurs that they use inferior parts inside compare to S12s.

Inferior is a relative term. The S12 has an inferior price. Let's put things into perspective; this is a $65 Seasonic 650 watt psu with Active PFC, >80 efficient. It may not have the very best internals, but this is far from the Fuhjyyu cap, low end model issue using a completely different manufacturer.

Make no mistake about it, this is not a low end unit by any means. Excellent bang for buck here!

Good internal shot: http://hardware.gotfrag.com/files/upload/oscar_trio_009.jpg

I don't think anybody here is going to argue that this is the best power supply ever made. But, show me a better power supply for $65.. I have been eyeing power supplies for over a month and this was the deal that made me jump. I fully expect to be using this until well after the warranty expires.
