Nope. Utter trash.

The best PSU's come from Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, Antec, Enermax and a select few from OCZ, Thermaltake, etc.

I don't understand what you are asking? You had a Xion and it blew up so you would even consider a new one?

XFX sells fine power supplies. All of their models are made by Seasonic.

Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec are the only brands that are high quality across the board.

Xion is cheap crap and you are lucky it did not kill your whole computer when it blew.

Xion PSUs are junk - I'm glad the rest of your components are safe!. XFX PSUs are actually made by Seasonic and are outstanding. Review: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...
The 550W XFX is actually more than enough for your PC, but I understand you going overboard with what happened with the Xion. With the 750W you'll have more than enough reserve capacity to be able to easily OC the card/CPU and CF the GPU if you want.
