Hello,

I'm having problems finding a power supply that supports SATA interface, the only one I have found was like $100 and i'm just not willing to spend that much on a PS. Does anyone know of a good PS that supports SATA (I really don't want a molex to serial converter type of deal, I really would rather have a PS that supports SATA out of the box)

better yet, does anyone know of a PS like this, under $60?

help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

The new Enermax PSU's come with Adaptors in them....they should say SATA Drive support or something like that on the box....
and Antec has them built in on their new power supplies.  Antec is probably your best bet since they are built in....

I can't find one for ANTEC at the moment...I do know they exist...i built a system with an Antec one for a customer...(who brought in his own PSU ANTEC to the store)

FYI:  you don' t want to buy a cheap P/S
ok with that off my chest.

The P/S listed above is a very good P/S.  This is b/c Enermax is making their P/S with a high 12V amp rail.  This is handy when you have more than one HD.  The one that is listed above has a rating of 33A. This is going to be key for the future.  You want have to buy a new P/S right away.
