Do you already have it? If not there are a couple better options for the price. I would take the EA650 Green, its not semi modular like the BP550 but its a better unit for the same price and leaves you an option to add a second GTX 460 in the future and is quite a bit more powerful than the BP550, i wouldnt worry at all about putting any single graphics card on the EA650 Green or some dual card setups.

If you happen to be in a region where you cannot buy off newegg, its still a pretty good unit, just not the best pick for the money.

If you're buying a new one go with EarthWatts as mentioned above; just don't get the Basiq.

Hmm.. I'm very noob in terms of PSU, isn't it bad that it's not a contious power?

Although I would like to have the option of SLI in the future..

Both the Basiq and the Earthwatts are continuously rated not peak rated, if you want SLI 460s in the future then definitely go for the EA650 Green, its got enough power to support it, you will need to use 2 adapters to run the second card but the PSU has enough power to back it up so its not really an issue.
