    That unit will be plenty of power for your config, but in the price range of that Corsair unit I would go with a different unit that has more power and is bronze certified.

    SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W $84.99

    This would be my choice before the VX 550 unless you can get the Corsair unit for much cheaper.

    Its $5 cheaper and more power and all around better unit.
  2. yes the corsair vx550 is about $10 cheaper than the SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W in my country.. :)

    so i'll go for the corsair one..

    also i heard that the VX550 is of great quality and its been for a few years now :)

    i forgot to add one CD & one DVD drives to my config.. :P

    Would the VX550 be able to handle (one more GTX 460) in SLI ?? (or 6870 in CF) in case i upgrade in the future??

    I wouldn't. You would be operating the 12 volt rail at around 90% of capacity under load. A good 650 watt PSU would be much better.
