I am currently working on my first build. Got everything in the mail a few days ago and one thing stood out to me is that the PSU I received from NewEgg came simply wrapped in bubble wrap. No box, manuals, etc. Did a quick google search and soon found out that what I bought was a OEM PSU.
The PSU that I purchased is the SeaSonic SS-300ET Bronze 300W (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151086). So I am trying to figure out what to do in regards to a power cable. Since this is my first build, I don't have a spare PSU power cord laying around... Or do I? I have a bricked PS3 that is just sitting collecting dust. Can I simply plug in the PS3 power cord to my new build? Or do I need a specific power cord for a PC? (Obviously I dont want to risk damage my new build because I used the wrong cord). Any other concerns that I might not be aware of in regards to OEM power supplies? Thanks.
