PSU descision Help

Hey guys, Im building a budget gaming rig w/these specs:

i5-2500k
Galaxy GTX 560 Ti
8gb Corsair RAM
750gb Seagate Momentus XT HDD

I need a PSU to power all these, and I found this one which seems pretty good, tell me what you gurus think of it:

If its not good, can you guys recommend another Modular 600w PSU for about 50-75 USD?

Thanks.

    the raidmax you linked makes a better door stop then it does PSU

    for $75 out the door you won't get a good modular PSU that fits your needs. you can get one for that amount after rebate though

    this rosewill is decent but powered more like a 500w unit. it will do the job but you will push it more then any of the other units listed. the PSU fits your budget though and the 650w version is $20 more. these units use the same platform as the OCZ ZS series.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182132&Tpk=rosewill%20650w

    this OCZ ZT is a solid budget modular PSU, a step up from the ZS series.

    for a little more you can get this PC power and cooling model based on a seasonic platform

    if you just want a solid budget unit to do the job (non-modular)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

    of all the units linked I would go with the PC power & cooling unit followed by the antec neo eco 620w.
  3. There are several modular PSUs for under $75 that meets his needs:
    Rosewill Hive 550W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182131
    OCZ Modxstream Pro 500W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016
    OCZ Modxstream Pro 600W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341017
    Both of the OCZs are $49.99 after rebate.
  4. you people just make the OP confuse just link one psu not the whole company?
