Corsair make some fine quality power supplys I would highly recommend them but make sure that you get the 80 Plus certified ones and you are good to go which this one is

they preform well under maximum load compared to other cheap power supply's which can shockingly blow up at them levels even slightly under load

im using that psu as u can see in my sig rig....its fine handling my components and was even able to handle another gtx 460 which i just used to see if the psu is capable or not....
its not top of the line psu but can do what it states on the cover very well.....
and if u want i can provide a pic of all 3 voltage rail fluctuations during idle and load........
and those r some decent figures....

while idle:


on load:


as u can see under load the readings r even better.....

im 20 and i too dont have a job...these i bought my components from savings...and i made the biggest mistake...i thought i7 is much better than i5(quad) in gaming and blowed a lot of cash on it...and the end result was i had to take a cheap mobo and just 2 gigs of ram...and instead of gtx 470 i ended up with gtx 460...thats why i tell everybody to get opinions...well i might get a job within 2-3 years after that i might upgrade my rig further...and as u see most of my parts r really old taken from my past p4 rig...like the crappy cabinet and 17"crt.....and i got my i7 rig recently in november start 2010.....
