Reviews on Newegg is kind of useless. There are so many noobs that don't know what they are talking about, and in the process they confuse more noobs trying to buy a similar product.
Use my advice at your own risk.

SamSung 20" LCD
Intel E6750 @ 2.66Ghz
Gigabyte p35-ds3r

Samsung 500gb @ 7200
PSU Xclio GreatPower 550W
Samsung DVD Burner
Logitec X-230 2.1

I can't see your list, but Fortron Storm 500W is a great PSU. I've had this since July 05.

Newbie since 2005.
