for your build the xcilio will do great, yes it cheap in price but not performance
dont go and waste 60 bucks on a seasonic because its not worth it

Correct me if im wrong, but doesnt seasonic make the corsair psus? The antec 900 can be had for 80 bucks from fry's right now and a corsair 520 is about the same price. And yes, the 70 dollars for a q6600 is worth it, but make sure you order it from some place that guarantees it is a g0 stepping, ala clubit.com

seasonic gives it stuff to higher end antecs.

I just like seasonic, because you get what you pay for, whichs its awesomeness.
