Default I just got a Rosewill 550W PSU.

I just received this PSU . I was skeptical about how good it was because many people have been telling me it was a mistake. However, when I picked it up out of the box, it was one of the heaviest PSUs I have ever lifted. I haven't completely put together my PC, but I'm sure this is a quality PSU.

No offence but I haven't heard good things about Rosewill products on this forum. You seem to have gotten a very good price and all but remember the saying "Don't be that guy."

I'm not saying its not a good PSU or anything because I honestly don't know. I hope it works out well for you.

That is a very big mistake. You think that one is heavy, pick up one of these:

Then what do you think about this PSU because it is the same exact power supply.

Never heard of that brand. You would be much better off with a reliable PSU like the one in my first post.

I was asking myself the exact same thing. Theres one thing people dont realize sometimes: It doesnt have to be the best to be good.

Its like saying anything less than a Ferrari is absolute garbage.
