I'm going to be honest, and it's not going to be pretty. That PSU should be avoided, and I know it was a gift so I don't like what I'm actually saying here.

I'd say to go for a Seasonic PSU instead. Corsair makes quality parts, but they're a little overpriced when it comes to some of their upper tier parts.

They're like Asus in a lot of ways. People just refer you to that when they don't know what else to refer. Just out of second nature. I don't like that.

That PSU will die a smoking death. Otherwise, looks good.

With your system even with a GTX 680 in it, all you'd need is a quality-made 400W PSU. However, I only found two PSUs worth recommending in the $50-60 price range:

 

 

Both would work very well for your system if you had a GTX 680. The 400W PSU is modular and the 550W isn't. So, this is a difficult decision, however my personal choice would be the modular PSU because they're easier to install.

At 50 to 60 dollor mark you are better of with the corsair vs the sea-sonic they are selling for the same if not lower price and have rebates like
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096 which is a 620watt from sea-sonic at 69.99
vs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028 which is a 600watt from corsair that starts at 69.99 and then has a 20.00 rebate
orhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094 which are 64.99 for sea-sonic
vshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 59.99 with a 20.00 rebate for corsair
its all really up to you in the end both are good psu manufactures biggrin.gif
