haha the guru beat me too it.

as Phaedrus said, it's a better investment to buy a NeoEco or S12II or HIVE (is that the Antec lineup?) than buying some crappy PSU that has more watts.

not sure what budget you're on but this is a very good PSU

I think I'm going to stick with my Corsair http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004 for now. I doubt I will be overclocking my 5770's and My i5 will only be pushed into the low 4's. Although I did break down and snag the hyper 212+ which I know im going to hate for cosmetic reasons... I just may be tempted to get closer to upper 4's. Corsair is a pretty good psu right? The thing is rated higher than any other psu I've ever seen on the egg.
