Could anyone please help me with selecting a good PSU - Page 3

I couldn't find the V550S, not even on Cooler Masters' website.

Found it, even cheaper than the Seasonic!

So the VS V550S. Since it's Semi-modular is there anything I should look out for?

not really - the non-modular cables are the motherboard connections and graphics card connection. you need all of them, so not really much to look out for. just make your cabling neat (use some cable ties perhaps) so that airflow in the case isn't restricted too much or at all if possible.

I'm sure you guys know a lot more than me about quality of a PSU in every way.

I would however never recommend a PSU that is not fully modular. Such a hassle... He has plenty of room in his budget, go fully modular.

I would take a good semi modular over a mediocre fully modular any day

Also its almost impossible to find a decent fully modular thats has less wattage then 650 watts

what is the hassle if every one of the fixed cables is necessary for your build?

Well, having built a lot of computers, this is my opinion.

I install the PSU along with all other components, and add, fix and secure one cable at a time. Nicer workflow.
If I need a shorter or longer cable, I can simply remove it from the build, make it the correct length, and sleeve it with no hassle.

Disagree all you want, but I will never buy a semi-modular PSU
