A good brand 550w will do. Like FSP (Fortron), Rosewill, Antec, XClio, HIPER, and Corsair if you can afford. Where are you buying from?...because that price is a bit high, for an E6600.

You can get ram with better latency's for about the same price. I would recommend this.

I wouldn't say that. it's just that if the word is used to describe a PSU usually it's not that good. However I would describe Xclio as "Cheap" but they are amazing PSU's for the money.

Hipro are good "cheap" ones too.
