That system is pretty much an overclocking system.

Overclocking is very safe these days. If you've overclocked too far, the computer will just restart.

There wouldn't be a difference, except for the picture on the cooler, and their warranty service. Although, I believe both have a lifetime warranty.

it'll fit... you should worry more about it not fitting in a case.. but it fits in most (if not all cases)

o ok and whats better ..

Newegg.com - Rosewill RX750-S-B ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91 750W Power Supply 100 - 240 V TUV, FCC, UL, CE, RoHS - Retail

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

the rosewill has more power and can go in a combo with my hardrive..with
a cheaper price
but b1gapl told me to get the Corsair in the first post..
isnt more power better .. maybe its cuz im noob and dont know. lol

the wattage doesn't matter much... its the amperage on the Dual 12V but the Corsair's specs looks better for the price
