There is a lot of discussion on Power Supplies when it comes to computer builds — and like everything, it comes down to what you want and can afford. Truthfully, I didn’t want something basic. You can easily get a 600w power supply and be fine, but I wanted a small step into the gaming world and came across the Sentey 750-watt Bronze Metal Blade power supply. This thing is pretty sweet and runs really quietly. It has more than enough power for the current build specs and my future plans for this machine. I purchased it for about 55$ at the time off of Amazon and with Amazon Prime, it was here within 2 days.

Now, one of those photos indicates that the cables are long enough to reach throughout the case – but anyone who has customized a case before should know that this is strictly a marketing tactic and subjective to the manufacturer. In all reality, I still had to purchase extension cables to make most of the cable management work.
This model also comes in two styles. One is the model shown above. The newer models, however, for a few more dollars, come in modular options, meaning you can remove cables you are not wanting to use. I wasn’t too interested in this at the time, but in hindsight, I wish I would have gotten it. The case I purchased was a bit tight on extra cable management space and so hiding these extra cables is a bit of a chore.
In the end, the product does deliver what it promised and I am pleased to recommend this product to anyone who is interested in purchasing it.
