Yup, love that unit too.

I'd land the Capstone if you don't have SLI intentions, OP.

Thanks for all the comments thus far. Besides that Rosewill Gold model, would you reccomend any others? Or should I just use the list that was supplied from earlier?

Trying to keep my budget around $65 or less....I didn't realize that the rig would only need a fraction of the power that I assumed.

The Capstone is the best unit on the market that kinda' fits your budget... if you want cheaper, an XFX Core 450 or a PCP&C Silencer MKIII 400W would do great as well.

So, this morning was going to be the day I made my decision when I opened up newegg and saw that a shell shock deal for the ANTEC NEO ECO 620W was $40 after rebate. I remember Broken Projector' comment about the lower model one being fine for my case. I noticed upon further research that this particular model was based off of the SEASONIC S12II.

And there was also a Corsair Builder Series CX430 v2 for $30.

So are either of those worth going for instead? Or am I just asking for trouble by thinking about them? Should i stick with the rosewill recommendation for aprox. $35 more and less power?

I definitely have a problem with making final decisions and pulling the trigger apparently....sorry for the last question and thanks again for all of your comments thus far.

the rosewill is definitely a better performer and much more efficient (however i dont know how much difference there will be at such low loads, in practical, $$$ saving terms.) both are non-modular...i dunno, the capstones are really really nice but the neo eco will work just fine as well. id probably go with the neo eco myself, 35 bucks is a bit of a difference
