Need help with PSU suggestion please!

Express.

Hey guys, I just finished gathering parts for my first build. After doing some research, I feel like I cheaped out on the power supply. I grabbed the EVGA 500 80+ bronze PSU, for 29.99. One of the problems I have with it is it is non modular, so I really don't want my CPU looking like a jungle full of snakes. I am also on a tight budget, so please keep that in mind. I heard that Seasonic makes great power supplies, Would you guys recommend this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119 or http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220gs0550v1 Thanks for the help! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182321&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

Both of those units are good but we need to see you entire system to determine the best PSU for your rig.

How are rosewill PSUs?

The Capstone isn't a bad unit as well as the Lightning and the Silent Night unit as they are made by Super Flower. The Quark and Tachyon are decent as well. These Rosewill PSU's aren't the best but they aren't bad either. Out of the three, the GS is probably the best but I would recommend spending a bit more and getting the G2 as it is slightly better and I believe more quieter than the GS.

the Seasonic G550 is quite better than the other two. one drawback is that it isn't fully modular. if you want the best deal in 550 watt it's the EVGA 550 G2 at $79.99 on amazon. that one is much better than these as well.
