Thermaltake TR-500P

What do you think about this PSU? Im buying one at christmas perhaps..
My PC Specs are :
I5 2500
4 GB RAM DDR3
Gigabyte Radeon HD 7750 OC
1 TB Seagate 7200 RPM SATA lll
Current PSU , 600w , its not a certified one, thats why im considering buying that one..

Maybe in the future im going to get a better video card, it could be a 7770 or better, playing on 1360x768 resolution.

  1. So you want to go down to a 500w from a 600w psu? Is there a reason to go down and not stay the same or even go up?

    These two would be much better choices and if they are too pricey then ;

    This Corsair is 80 plus certified and for only $50 for a 600w psu this is a good deal.
  2. The 700W version was positively reviewed at hardwaresecrets, so I think it's probably an ok option.

    Where are you? (Country or website you are buying from is the information I'm after) And what is your budget?

    What PSU do you currently have?

    Im from Peru, and the prices from newegg for example are not the same here, like 20 or 30 dollars of difference or more.. Also my PSU is NOT a certified one, it says 600w, but who knows how many watts is it really giving? Thats why i want to upgrade that and perhaps another video card.
