I picked this PSU because it had decent reviews, but I'm wary anyway. I'm not sure it's big enough or good enough or quiet enough. I'm not going to be SLI-ing, or upgrading CPU or GPU for a long while (long enough where I'd just build a whole new system rather than upgrade). I don't mind spending an extra 20-30 bucks if there is a better, quieter, more reliable (I've read so many DOA horror stories from so many brands of 500-600w...) PSU. I just feel that the PSU is a very, very important part of any build, even though I'm a newbie and this is my first time.
What say you?
