Hey, should i buy the EVGA 450 watt BT. It is on sale on newegg for Canadian $48 tax included with a $10 Mail in rebate, so it'll be around $38. Is it worth the price, or do u think itll be any cheaper around boxing day? Also how to mail in rebates work?

No, not worth it at all. It has zero reviews out for it. For all we know it could be a bomb. Don't take unneeded risks on the PSU.

It's an average PSU, around the quality of the 500b pretty much.

Basically, average quality from what people are saying. It's not the best but it's a fine budget power supply.

Where does anyone mention it's around the quality of the EVGA 500b. For all we know, this unit is rated for 30C (not good)...

The platform is similar to the 500b, though not the same.

And for the information we have right now, I wouldn't trust it in any new build.

I made a guess that it's around 500b quality, it wasn't supposed to be taken as 100% fact.

Well no quotes of quality or performance are facts yet until we get some reviews of them.

Its performance is still totally unknown.

That's why I said "guess"
