is the corsair builder 500cx v2 ok for this build?

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-500-Watt-Certified-Compatible-Platforms/dp/B004W2T2U6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326094059&sr=8-1

My previous logisys 550 watt power supply died and i want to know if the corsair 500 watt is good enough to power the following:

Mobo: xfx 630i
CPU: e8400
Graphics: ATI 5830HD
4 hard drives
pcie x1 sound card
and possibly some usb peripherals


Although I'm pretty sure the previous psu died because it was crap, I want to make sure that is the case before I buy a lower wattage better psu.

also, are there any other psu's in the same price range that can perform better? or any that are cheaper that can perform the same?

I don't want to spend too much money on it because it is only going to be used temporarily.

Corsair makes great products and they will replace it if anything happens to it.

Get the CX430 and save some money, or better yet, get an Antec EarthWatts 380D or 430D, either is plenty for the hardware you listed smile.gif
