But the xclio 550 is around a hundred bucks, while the rosewill 500 is around sixty bucks. Is xclio really worth the extra money? I heard that xclio has a buzzing problem after you shut the pc down...

Just get enough power if you're on a budget, otherwise get a Corsair 520W, I'd get the XClio over the rosewill though, and you don't exactly need the $100 version..Newegg.com - XCLIO STABLEPOWER 500W ATX 500W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail
Heck, go for the Fortron 450W, that should handle your setup no problems, I have the 400W version, it works great.

there are diffs between good and greatpower, fade would know that, but i think the great power has more amps on the dual 12v i think.........
