I run a Silverstone Decathlon on my 8800GT, and it's completely awesome. But I like modular, and I'm partial...
thats bull because i had a rosewill 550 that powered a quad at 4.1, 2 8800gts's 2 pumps 2 hard drives and like 20 fans just fine

I said JonnyGuru rated their 500W an 8.5/10. That's not bad, he even said he was overall surprised by the quality in that particular model, despite Rosewill's bad reputation. I would imagine your 550W is even better than the 500W he reviewed. I don't doubt you have had good results. But his 450W probably won't do him as well as your 550W.

You don't know that. As someone who has been through 4 different power supplies, 3 of which came with cases, I can tell you that the problem isn't power. It's reliability. It'll blow one of these days possibly taking a video card or hard drive with it.

And better to overestimate the amount of power you need than to underestimate. My computer will barely use 400W at balls to the walls full load, but I chose to go with a reliable 600W unit. Good insurance.

you get what you pay for , PSUs included in cases are more times than not , cheapos , and ROSEWILL isnt top of the line , if its ok now thats fine , but youll be pissed if you dont get a quality PSU , and that one craps out and frys your system...happens all the time

Enermax or PC P&C in my opinion. Enermax makes a 460Watt PSU that is way above other PSU's in that range. Thou both companies can be a bit pricey,it's well worth in the long run.
