Windows 7: Give me all of the benefits of upgrading my power supply please (:

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

IMHO a no name power supply like that is at best a door stop. There are brands that I would suggest, Antec, Corsair, Pc Power and Cooling are just a few. No you can't buy them for $25.00. Keep in mind that every thing starts with a power supply. A $500.00 video card works like a $10.00 card if a all with a poor power supply. Nothing works correctly with out a very good power supply.A power supply is not the place to save money.
