I have a Rosewill PSU in my wife's computer and it does its job well. Its a 500W in their Stallion series of PSUs. Powers a i3 2100 and a GTS 450 with no problems at all.

That is the extent of my knowledge on their PSUs but every other Rosewill product I have gotten has been very nice for the money they cost. That includes card readers, fans, and cases. I trust their products.

Give us the whole build and we'll critique it. Tier 1 makers are Seasonic / XFX / Corsair / Antec/ some Enermax ocz pc&p units. Rosewill and CM is usually tier 3 4 5 (anything under 4 is utter crap).

There is a chart somewhere.. i'll try and dig it up for you.

*edit* nvm the chart is outdated.

Drop the CPU to a phenom II X4 955 BE and use that ~$40-50 saved for a better psu.

Seasonic S12II 520

Antec HCG 520
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Corsair CX 600 V2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Antec EA 500D
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

When gaming, there's practically no performance difference between 4 and 6 cores so a thuban will be an utter waste. So we cut that ~$190ish part out and go for a $120 955be that will perform the same in games. The money saved will then go for a much higher quality psu and maybe even a 6870 if we save enough!

either way, never ever go cheap on power supplies. These are the types of things that can last 5+ years and go through multiple builds while other parts get "obsolete". Most programs dont use more than 2-3gb's except the very intensive "professional" editing of software making programs.

So 4gb is the sweet spot. Ram is cheap nowadays and it's price is only going to get lower.

no, not really

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/page/power

they examine power supplies very closely on this site, and rosewill's rarely get recommended, so many other brands that frequently are that it is hard to justify buying one.

corsair makes or has good PSUs made for them, I think seasonic manufactures that particular PSU, but I could be wrong
