  1. NCIX canada offers great prices and does price-matching...highly recommended. If you're looking at the Corsair CX500 then it is a decent PSU and more than sufficient for your build.
  2. Are you referring to this PSU? http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=60329&vpn=CMPSU-500CXV2&manufacture=Corsair&promoid=1142 You probably won't find a better PSU for less than $50 (after MIR).
  3. Its perfectly fine
  4. $50 flat, no rebates but much higher quality. Based on the Seasonic S12II Bronze 520.
    Antec High Current Gamer HCG-520 ($50 @ Canada Computers)

    Cheaper than the CX500 V2, after rebate, slightly better quality:
    OCZ ZS Series 550W ($60 @ NCIX / $25 rebate)

  5. +1 fo the Antec HCG 520
