Question How is this stock PSU?

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKA1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Real Power Pro 550W Power Supply - Computer Cases

Do you think the PSU that comes with the case is any good?

btw this is the psu ur getting w/ the case:
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Real Power Pro 550 RS-550-ACAA-A1 550W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

ur only paying an extra 10$ for a $90 psu


and when we say stock psu's are bad we refer to junky brands like xion sunbeam...

antec and coolermaster are pretty top notch
