I would personally stick with a highly reputable brand like Silverstone or PC&P. I wouldnt skimp on one of the most influential parts of your system. one voltage spike can wreak havoc.

That being said I know little about Rosewill other than the fact I havent heard much of them, meaning their not on the top of the review lists . I would wait for someone with more experience answers before deciding though. Im just giving my

If that's all you can afford? Well, it seems okay but we probably never buy that because we know what happens with "el cheapo" PSUs.

+5V@55A,+12V1@19A,+12V2@19A

This is junk... 600W for 2x 19A 12v... nope not good at all. 5v didn't need all that Amperage. The power is badly spread. It would be good if the 5v had less power and there was a 3rd 12V line instead...

It isn't too bad. The smaller brother got a pretty decent review on Jonnyguru.com:
http://www.jonnyguru.com/review_deta...=48&page_num=4

Keep it cool, and it'll serve you is basically the outcome.

Combined 12V is 35A, which is low for a 600W unit, but it isn't bad.

This would be my alternative:

$80.75, it's a Silverstone, and also 35A on the 12V rails.

Go with the Silverstone Chozart recommended. Very solid unit. WAY worth the extra $15.

As I said, it isn't that bad. It will run your rig, and if you keep your case well ventilated, probably for a good while
