So, I suppose that since it's on this list, then it's probably a good buy. I mean, the 550W Fatal1ty isn't mentioned there (but notice that the 530W Rosewill Green is hehe).
Alright, if it's on a recommended list it's good enough for me. I trust all you OCN guys with everything, haven't steered me wrong yet. 600W ModXStream it is. One of the comments on it said that some of the connectors were a bit short, so I'll just pick up a few of those extensions. For the sake of sleep, I'll call it good.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Damn, I wish I could name decisions that fast (when it comes to my computer).

I've made the past three in the same situation I'm in now. I planned on going to bed about four hours ago. Work at 1pm and it's almost 8am. Coherent enough to understand most of what's going on, but I'm a sucker for $3 rush processing so I've also got to get the order in as soon as I can.

So far, so good.

Yes sir you said it. I dont have the knowledge as so many of you. But am a firm believer in QUALITY for the PSU. I got my Seasonic 650 gold on sale at the egg for $119 W/free shipping and I can not imagine a better PSU out there.

Always helps to bring the faults, the good, the facts out, not to mention price. Good luck with your upgrade.

It's just that when I was picking out parts for my system, I was extremely careful. I spent more than a few weeks on it (that's all I'm willing to admit, for it was longer than that). I always made sure that my final decision was the best choice for my money even though it meant that I had to stare at my un-built system for a couple of weeks while I finished choosing parts.

I spent a few weeks picking a power supply alone . Whilst this PSU might not be the best suited to my computer, and it's definitely overkill, I got it really cheap from a guy who reviews PSUs on some other overclocking forum. When I was planning on buying new before, the top PSU on my list was an Antec Basiq Plus 550W

And I'd much rather have this PSU.

What I also do is research something loads, decide which one to buy, and then say that I don't need it and don't actually buy it.

For the record, the NZXT Hale90 series are great, and they are better than the Rosewill Green you already have, but since you already have the RG-530, there's no reason to replace it unless you want some kind of upgrade. It'll work fine with a GTX 570.
