Question Questions about a specific TFX PSU

I am considering buying this InWin case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811108428 for an inexpensive mini-ITX "daily driver." I would like to know if the included PSU is fit for purpose, or should be replaced without tasting A/C. I believe it to be a "PowerMan," which is neither inspiring nor frightening from the few reviews of the brand I've found. The initial CPU will be a Pentium G860, and the video card will be a HD7750. This build should not stress a 300W PSU at all. Google was not friendly. Does anyone have any direct experience with this unit, or any citations to a competent technical review of it? I'm trying to keep up-front costs low, and buying a Seasonic TFX just for the efficiency would be penny wise and pound foolish. Thanks.

The In Win should be fine. I use the 300W In Win TFX in the BL series cases sometimes. I haven't as yet load tested one, but after a quick peek inside, I do think it should easily do the rated 300W in spec. It does use OST and Samxon GF caps, though, which could be an issue in a few years time. I guess you could replace it with the Seasonic then if need be, though.

Thank you. That is precisely the kind of answer I was looking for. (If you do happen to load test one, I'd be interested in the results)
