And by the way, Odin does come from the same shop I am buying from, but the page wasn't loading up so just had to go to Komplett and find it there to show you.

If I'm not mistaken you also told me to go to a 32bit OS when I have 4 gig of RAM??? - Explain that. :S

I think you will want a 64bit OS if you plan to use 4GB of ram.

i don't see the point in you arguing with people now, since you are so sure you are buying the better PSU, why not just go and do it, obviously the advice here is not to your liking. It is your choice in the end.

For the last time now, I am making a show PC, so if you guys could give a PSU that looks just as nice as the Odin, but as good as the PC Power + Cooling, I would be more than happy to accept.

You are jumping down my throat but in reality you are the ones who are not listening to me.

I have changed most or all my specs to your recommendations but I refuse that PSU because it looks like a bag of crap - I need a nice looking one, can you not understand?

Again, I need one that looks just as nice as the Odin, but as good as the PC Power + Cooling PSU.

Mikey.

Wow mate you need to calm down lol. Why are you getting so worked up man and why are you annoyed with me? I was only trying to save u some monies.

The PC Power and Cooling does actually look good when its in your case but if it is a bit too bland for you then they do a special red edition that looks $1C|<.

These ones also looks WIKID

Seasonic S12 Energy+ 550W Silent ATX2.0 Power Supply

Corsair HX 620W ATX2.2 Modular SLI Compliant PSU (CMPSU-620HXUK)

Enermax Infiniti 650W EIN650AWT ATX2.2 Modular SLI Compliant PSU

OH and by the way the reason that i reccomented a 32 bit os is because you only lose 750MB of the RAM in your system and that in my eyes is a fair trade off for the convenience of a 32bit os rather than a 64 bit one.

They are helping you, and for literally NO reason at ALL you decided they were jumping down your throat. This is called Paranoia.

There, you have been given suggestions, Read the above posts. Also they never told you to get 4gigs of ram for a 32bit OS, you must have misread something.

All in all you're acting like a spoiled child. Id suggest you tone down the paranoia. Nobody here is out to get you, and fewer and fewer will be out to help you with your attitude either.
