Not the best unit, but the wattage is decent. If you plan to oc and want to make sure your good, you can go a bit higher, but don't go lower

It's not the caps, they're all Japanese and good. From what I've heard its the implementation of the multi-rail system so that it sometimes can't deliver the full wattage in some configs.

The nerd in me just wants to point out that you actually can have too much power. Its not going to hurt or break anything, its just going to be inefficient.

Mine has a little sticker on the box that says all Japanese caps. Haven't had an issue with it yet, and it's still a decent unit (I can't complain, I got it for only $50, and it was either that or a CX600), but there are better ones around for the price right now. What we really need is a Super-Flower-built 650w unit from EVGA. They'd probably price it very competitively like they have with the G2 units.

Nope, no 650GS yet, only 1050GS and 850GS (at least on EVGA's website). Still, I really hope they make one. Their higher-end units are so well-priced and reliable (the 1000W G2 is cheaper than most good 850w units) that if they were to manage something like that in the sub-700w range for >$100, it would probably be the most popular PSU on the market.
