Hey, my build is:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Intel DZ77BH55K ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B)
Storage: OCZ Vertex 3 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (VTX3-25SAT3-120G)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: XFX Radeon HD 7850 1GB Video Card (FX-785A-ZNFV (not ZNFC) ) (Tigerdirect for $170)
Case: unbranded but its atx size
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Monitor: LG E2742V-BN 27.0" Monitor
Keyboard: Thermaltake eSPORTS Challenger Pro Wired Gaming Keyboard
Mouse: Logitech M325 Wireless Optical Mouse

For the PSU is the Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w Power Supply (RS500-PCARD3-US) good enough?
It's only $40 and i really don't want to spend more on this computer. I already through $730 into this build. If its not good enough what would you recommend for a similar price that is NOT based on REBATE?

Thanks for the help and sorry if that last sentence sounds rude i don't mean it in a bad way just i hate rebates :p

No the Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w is not good enough. Here is a review to convince you:

The Stallion series from Rosewill isn't good either.

Agree with prototype's recommendation, can't see anything better for a lower price or anything cheaper that is worth buying and suitable for your build.

Have to agree with proto & silv on stallion series - if it were their Capstone series,
it would be different. Go with prototype's rec if you afford it. Nice unit.
