I am trying to save some money on my upcoming build and came across this PSU:
*Recertified* Black OCZ / PC Power and; Cooloing Silencer 610 EPS12V 610W Computer Power Supply S61EPS-B, 80 PLUS and SLI Certified

The original (non-recertified) version seemed to get a lot of good reviews on newegg.

What do you guys think? I know that the PSU is not something you want to skimp on, but this seems like a good unit, I'm just not sure if getting a refurb'ed one is a bad idea or not.

Thanks for your input.

its hard to say you might have the same luck with a newer one. also refurbs have a shorter warrenty than if you bough it new. it would be best to get an extended warrenty with it if you do decide to get it. years ago i got a refurbished GPU and never had an issue with it
