The price tag of the NesteQ ECS5001 comes in at around $115.00 which seems a little high given the wattage. It's right at about that mark where some users who aren't so worried about reliability will opt for a little bigger wattage PSU in another name. However, you're not going to find this sturdy a power supply for much less these days.
Can I recommend the NesteQ ECS Series Power Supplies to anyone including the enthusiasts? Definitely! If your system requires more power or if you have a newer Quad Core Extreme and 8800s in SLI, you'll want to consider something more powerful like their ECS6001 or ECS7001. Otherwise, the ECS5001 won't disappoint any expectations. A big thanks to Acoustic PC for bringing us something surprisingly new.
