well they offer exceptional quality for a decent price. if you want to spend less go for a antec or even rosewill. just check for about 30 amps on the 12v rails. (or more)

thanks for the reply, but actually how do u choose for a good PSu? i know is not just the power output..

Corsair sounds good , is 550W enough for my configuration? without sli.

Recently my PSU sound strange, some time the fan noise is low some time is fast.. it never occur before

Watts don't matter, amps do, thats the proper way to call if a PSU is good enough or not
