Its regarded as a great psu and has the reviews online to back it up.

It also looks completely *****in and is silent so far as ive heard.

It is also certified by nvidia as being sli compatible, a big deal for any psu.

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.

i think most people get PSU's that are overkill.

I'm running fine off an Antec 500watt...I have a floppy, 3 SATA hard drives (2 in RAID 0), and 1 DVD burner..not to mention my CPU is overclocked 550mhz and my GPU is overclocked a bunch too...and 2 sticks of DDR memory running at 230mhz

I also have 2 120mm fans, a 92mm cpu fan, an 80mm LED fan, and 2 Cold cathode tubes.

Wattage Isn't everything, Theres quality of Components used to build the Power supply and theres also Stability under Load.

I think other members have already spoken, You won't Be disappointed.

The one thing that can mess up a system badly is a cheap power supply blowing its top. It don't pay to go cheap. As for people over raiting the importance of power supplies... It's your puter man.

Hey, if you want to risk damage to components you just spent money on, go ahead, as for me, I will go with the expensive crap =)
