Some get put off by the low wattage for the price, but rest assured this is more reliable and capable than some cheaper 600W PSUs out there. Single rail, top Corsair quality, runs cool and quiet. After getting a cheapo higher wattage PSU and having it fail 3 months latter, i got this, and its made all the difference. Ive built 3 systems with this PSU now, could not ask for better quality. Keep a look out for MIRs from Corsair, I got a $15 rebate myself. Currently on this PC this is powering an E8400 @3.6, Asus P5Q mobo, 98GTX(OCed too), 500GB SATA2, and 8Gigs of DDR2-800.
