Yeah, specs. It'll handle anything without a ridiculous graphics card or sli/xfire.

I don't think it's an excellent power supply at all. Altho I don't really know because I haven't seen a review of it.

I'd prefer to forgo the rebate and get this unit which has the same amount of amps on the 12V rail, is more efficient, has a higher temperature ratings and is based on the very positively reviewed Seasonic S12II Bronze 520W:
Antec High Current Gamer HCG-520 80Plus Bronze $60

Though from Corsair, the CX series is the very basic of their units.. Looking at your system, i'll recommend you to get a better unit.. Something like a Corsair TX 650 V2 will be better.. The extra pricing is certainly well worth it.. Both units can handle your rig surely.. There is also the XFX 650W which is both modular and has a lower price (after rebate) compared to the TX 650..

Money being a serious issue, no apparent harm in sticking to your current selection..

I think I am just going to go with the cx600 or should I go with this?
