The PSU is overkill and expensive but it wioll last you a while. There is nothing wrong with the ToughPower series as they are very good.I just never liked them becuase they were pricey, but since you got a good deal on it then theres nothing wrong with that

Oh wow, a lot of replies and after reading them it makes me not want to change the PSU from non modular to modular. Maybe I should stay with non modular

Ive been wanting to power my system up and all I have missing is the PSU since the one i ordered at newegg was DOA. The Corsair one. And since this Toughpower 750W is cheaper than the Corsair 620W, I thought its much better.

So im keeping this and will not order the modular one since it will take a few days for it to arrive considering that I have this one in my hands.

So Thermaltake Toughpower 750 Watt PSU it is!

non-modular is the way to go.
less stress on connections and better connections IMO.
