Check out this article on Tom's Hardware. This is exactly why when it comes to building a custom PC, you shouldn't skimp on the PSU.

More fun making you do it.
Anyways, I love how the 420w one exploded at 85 watts. Pure quality right there.

I've been there once, and I will always regret it, poor 8800GT and Intel Core 2 Duo E6800 :'(

Woah. Since when did Tomshardware use oscilloscopes? There PSU reviews used to be trash and only include software voltage readings or at beast a multimeter. Jonnyguru did similar tests on pieces of crap too.
