I've been told the XtremeGear power supply listed in this set-up is too wimpy. There's a Corsair 650TX option for another $65. A good choice?

Corsair is a brand that has a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty.

CorsairTX650 and Antec EA-650 are both good choices....unless you are using an Antec case, pick whichever is cheaper on day you buy.
