Default In need of a Power Supply....

My old Cosel Power Supply has finally died. So I really need a Power Supply ASAP.

I'm looking for one at around 15-20A and fairly cheap in price. ( I know, it's very limited)

After searching through the forums, I found one I really liked:

http://www.buyreliant.com/psupplies/psv200.htm

How reliable is that PS?

If anyone has any better suggesions, please tell me.

Thanks,
-Paul

that's probably one of the best p.s. to get for your money. The radioshack ones are good too. I have a 15amp($80) , anf they have a 25amp($100).

Mr. Shookie, Thanks for the input but I had that on my first post already.

Actually, Pyramid makes great supplies. I've got a 25 amper that's at least 17 years old, and it works flawlessly. No worries with a pyramid supply.

Much more has a neat little power supply that puts out 20amps continues.
A little pricey for you but you get what you pay for.
Try contacting Kumpol or Arun at www.nexusracing.net

Yup, that's what I did. I ended up getting the Pyramid PS.

SpeedXL, The MuchMore PS does look nice but $190 is absolutly rediculous.

Thanks for all the help guys.
