    Hey guys,

    Im currently trying to find the right transistors for my project. What I'm doing is using the transistor as a switch to turn on 2 12v dc computer case fans. These fans are rated at 0.4 A peak. I tested them and they don't go that high. So i figured I need a transistor that can handle 1 A minimum. I need this to be a pnp or a p-channel fet since i need it on the high side of my circuit.

    What is everyone's favourite transitor that can handle 1A or Greater, 12v and is pnp or p-channel?

    (hopefully i have included enough information, if not, please ask :D)
