Clownboat said:Huh, that's weird. Got mine for $400 even.
EDIT: Also, those PSUs suck. $50 isn't too bad for one, but I'm not about to buy it just so I can get two GT's at MSRP.

It's a rebadged Fortron/Sparkle. The 550 watt Fortron unit is considered to be a very good power supply.
Give me reasons why the BFG PSU sucks?

Arvig said:Didn't see the deal, but if the PSU is rebadged by BFG, wouldn't it make sense they would stay consistant and use only one or two brands? Would be a nightmere to do otherwise...let's say they rebadged a half dozen PSU's...okay, someone sends one back for a RMA...if they rebadge a half dozen brands, more likely they send it in to the wrong people for repair. Yes, sounds dumb that they would, but well...why not have such a chance and pick one or two brands, less of a chance they send a PSU to the wrong manufacturer when they have a customer's unit repaired, or if they just replace it, when BFG sends it back to the original manufacturer to try and get their money back.
Or to put it another way, if you're a factory, and have a parts bin, is it better to get your parts from one or two places, or from a half dozen, some of high quality, some low quality?
If it's Chumbo rebadging them, I guess it's more likely it's whatever they have in stock, but even then I would be somewhat surprised, it is their rep if they send out a crappy PSU with two video cards that will require a decent amount of power...and more RMA's they have to deal with if they do this.
