But yes, yes, we understand the graphs.

How does this have anything to do with the question -
"Will this PSU power my rig for two years until I upgrade?"

I've always been a photographer.

But I was in the army at one point in time.

It's okay. I rest assured just as well, after 10 years, with my crappy PSUs

I've been building since I was 11.
I've been photographing since I was 8 (seriously since I was 16).
I've been a soldier for the past three years, part-time maintaining the rigs of my entire base (although I did have some help).

Also most of Raidmax, though they have one or two half-decent units at higher wattages.

alright more in this spirit.... supposing I go to my microcenter to buy that cheap CPU and I want to get a PSU while i'm there to knock out 2 birds with one stone rather than wait for one in the mail... what should I look for.... besides the 12v max load being at least 28 or above, and being at least around 450watts....

understand, I am NOT UPGRADING THIS RIG, once this is built it'll be as-is permanently

check for large down mounted fan too it provides better cooling
just have a feel for the product see its build quality.....
see inside of it and check whether it has adequate heatsinks or not....
thats almost it....

I don't think that's ever going to happen.

The accepted thinking is that the PSU will die and cause lots and lots of trouble.
You have experts who have wasted their time learning meaningless facts, trying to convince you that.. they're just here to "help you make the right decision."

I call BS to this.

I know I will get flamed. I have been getting flamed.
But we are going to keep arguing until we see into the future and can tell if the PSU had died or not.

For your system look for the Corsair CX430, it's best quality low-wattage PSU they're likely to have. By the +12V output it should have been rated a 380W, but it will still work fine for your needs.

Skip the CoolerMaster eXtremePower units, and Thermaltake's 430W power supplies are all the same 350W HEC that shuts off if you go over 355W. It would still work for you, but I prefer not supporting that type of bullcrap.
