Would this be a good choice for my sig rig? Buying later today.

My PSU died and I'd like to go get one today. Would the above be a good choice for what I have in my sig?

Also, If you see any at Microcenter.com that you think would be better for me, please feel free to say so. (I usually get things from Newegg, but I want it TODAY and they are local.)

If the price tag is correct, then I would recommend the Corsair 750TX $99 after MIR. Too bad, you need a PSU right now.

That should be more than enough for the build you have in your Sig. However, if you decide to upgrade the CPU/RAM/GFX later on I can see you utilizing all 700w. Also, I am not sure if your sig rig would even need 550w (I think 500w would work, but no point in downgrading as you want future proofing)

Yes. Definitely. I have a Corsair myself, came with nice packaging and has excellent customer support. Some guy on Newegg rubbed his on his carpet and fried it, starting cursing about the PSU not being able to "take any static electricity", and they still offered a replacement PSU.

I'd also recommend Corsair units . All I hear about them is good news.

So it was this why I always read Coolmax as Coolpop...

If your current PSU is TruePower Trio then Coolpop is pretty much downgrade. 12V is pathetically weak at 500W (but then again it isn't even 700W PSU) and that kind fireworks tendency ain't good thing.
Corsair TX650 would have been cheaper even without rebate:
