Hey guys, I thought of upgrading my PSU for my rig since I had some crappy iCAN 600W PSU that many people said would be unreliable since it is a random, cheap brand. So, I bought a NZXT HALE82 series 650W PSU about two days back. I wanted your opinions on whether this is a good buy or not. I think I can still return it if you guys have better suggestions. I have an AMD Phenom II X4 955 OC'ed to 4.0Ghz and a Sapphire Radeon HD6870 OC'ed to 970MHz core clock and 1200MHz mem clock at a core voltage of 1.24V. What I liked about this PSU that I bought was that it was modular and had nice black cables. Also, it said the capacitor was 100% Japanese. :na:  Now I know there are many other things to consider in a PSU but the hardware tech guy at the store said it was a good choice so I bought it. Was he right?

Lol I feel even better when I checked the price of my PSU right now on Newegg.com. It is selling for $110 whereas I got it for $65 from a retailer nearby! :D
