Its just that the TT's are overpriced for their quality compared to other power supplies.

If you don't go with the one I suggest You can look and find one using these brands as a a guide. Stick to them and you should be fine.

Trust STE he's "SuperPsuGuY"...

....those Corsairs are sweet, otherwise personally I'd go with a Seasonic.
