Pros: Has good cables, enough power for a Mid Grade PC, looks good

Cons: Won't power a lot, but you should know that, Not Modular

Got this for my Back-Up Rig to power a Q6600 and a 9800GX2, does a great job.

Looks good and is quiet. Runs cool with my CPU and GPU, also runs a few extra fans. It's not Modular, and it sucks on a Mini-Tower, but i knew it going in. It works great, been running it for months 24/7 and no problems. Only has 2 PCI Cables, but again, it's not made to power 4 590's lol

If you can get this PSU for like $30-$50 and you plan on powering a little Dual or Quad core around Stock speeds and maybe up to a 660Ti at stock, and a few HDD's and Fans, this PSU will do fine.

Thanks
