I just ordered a Corsair TX650W 650-Watt Power Supply. I hope it works better then old one. Its neat how they can put a big fan on top.

Do they make a quiet power supply? I paid just 35.00 for the brand new case with the power supply in it.

If i get a 600 watt power supply will my power bill go way up?

If you get a good, name brand (such as a Corsair) 600W will be far more than you actually need.

A 450 or 550 would be plenty with some overhead.
And, the power bill may actually be cheaper if its a 80%+ effecient PSU.

To be quite honest, if your case was a $35 case, with a PSU included ....
Even a Corsair 400W would likely be more powerful, quieter, and use less energy from the wall to do so.

Many times, the PSUs they include with cases are more of a selling point, and simply are not worth actually having.

Here is a power supply similar to the ones I got for my two home-built systems:

Newegg.com - Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W Continuous Power ATX12V Ver.2.2 / EPS12V version 2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

The key features are the Active PFC (active power factor correction) and the 80 PLUS Certified (more than 80% efficient). It's likely you'll use a a third less power and it will run cooler. A power supply being rated for 650 Watts only means it's capable of supplying 650 Watts on demand, it has little to do with how much it's using at any given moment.

Bye.
