I could afford a psu up to $80 but nothing higher than that due to my current budget.

Comparability is good. Rosewill is a fairly decent company in your price range probably one of the best your gonna do and yes 630w is enough for your rig I would not really commend going under 600. Good set up btw nicely balanced and shouldn't bottle neck to much any where.
Don't go Rosewill. When it comes to power supplies, only consider Antec, Corsair, and Seasonic. The 630 is enough for your i5-2500k and SLI/Crossfire.
I have this PSU and while it is a great PSU in it's own right, the rosewill green 630w is better
Also I got this PSU for $37 AR on a shellshocker, at it's current price I'd go with the Rosewill (or maybe a Antec HCG 620w if it is still $50 AR like the last time I checked)
I wouldn't mind a price difference of ten bucks, but is corsair really worth choosing over rosewill?
BTW: I'm totally oblivious with PSU
I hope you're mistaken about not being able to find anything under $80 because I found a lot this week alone while suggesting builds to others ;P
lol winter to be totally honest I was just skimming through one or two pages on new egg and didn't see any thing. and to magician personally ya 10$ more for a corsair is worth it I think allot would agree. there actually the only brand of psu I put in my builds. Your build is well balanced PSU really isn't a great place to try and save a buck or two since you will most likely be using it for a long while. Disclaimer not saying other brands Antec seasonic for example arn't good just a matter of my own experience and opinion.
Agreed. If I didn't care about PSU, I wouldn't have even consider asking questions lol. Thanks for the advice and I would get corsair.

Thanks for the best answer a1nd I'm glad we could help nice build and I hope you get allot of joy out of it. Have fun
The older, non-active PFC Rosewill PSUs destroyed their reputation for PSU quality, but the new "green" ones seem to be just as good as the low-end Corsair or Antec PSUs with which they compete (whose "low-end" is still pretty darn good).
I already bought a corsair 650W PSU, so I can't do much about it now. But thanks for the info. Was really curious why Rosewill had such a bad reputation
Their older PSU's where prone to dying and taking out other hardware with them
