Lots of leds =/= Good PSU

For your current system I'm sure it's fine, however I would not run a $500 GPU on a no brand PSU.

Seasonic, Corsair and Antec are the brands you should be looking at if you decide to upgrade.

The TX750 is a great choice if you can put up with non modular PSUs.

Best choices for GTX 580 would be Asus, MSI Lightning or EVGA (reference is the cheapest and can OC easily) Can get a 3gb under card under your budget.

I've never heard much of them, but if they're good then I stand corrected.

I thought abs tagan were pretty good as well sp4wners.
The msi lightning looks sweet but I can't find a full waterblock for it
Is the evga 3g card easy to overclock to get similar numbers as the lightning?
