The 80+ Golde certification of the Raidmax RX1000-AE is fake, it is in fact an Andyson Nuclear internally, an 80+ Bronze with with poorish voltage regulation and output quality, the one positive aspect being the fact that it can actually deliver it's full rated power continuously.

The SSD is http://www.corsair.com/ssd/force-series-3-ssd/force-series-3-120gb-sata-3-6gbps-solid-state-hard-drive.html
That was not a good choice.

Internally it's the same unit as the Raidmax discussed above, just pushed a littler further... regulation turns from below average to outright bad, it's not a good unit.
The Strike X 800W is a good unit though, it's the best I've seen from Andyson in a long while.
The Hale90 650 and X 660 make excellent choices too.

Well all in all, after u showed me that mindfactory page, i see that i could have saved an overall 25% aproximately, so i've made a huge wrong turn along the way.. But done is done. i think i'm gonna go with the 650W NZXT Hale Power 90+ Gold Modular. Im guessing that's the one u ment with hale90 650 right?
It looks good, and is very afforable.

Thank you guys so much for your time. I really appriciate it.

Yes, that's the one I was talking about, it's an excellent unit.. next time you're looking for hardware check the idealo.de pricer for Germany(shipping to Danmark is cheap, especially if you buy a bunch of items), and geizhals.at for EU wide pricing.

Oh btw, one last question.

On my Asus GTX 570 Direct CU II it says under requirements "550W Minimum System Power Requirement (W)"

Will this affect the NZXT PSU in any way?

Nope, that's a 250W card smile.gif... manufacturer recommendations are always exaggerated because they need to account for every trash unit out there that can't deliver half its rated power.
