Just curious, the Cougar solution says to have good cooling too, comparing the two, what does the 912 have that the cougar doesn't? Also why is that processor not good for gaming? Is there a better one in that price range? I will be getting a GPU in the next few months but for right now my budget won't allow it, and most of the gaming I do right now is okay-ish, and will be better when I get an upgrade (my current PCU is ony 2.2 ghz dual core amd). So I will be re-using my old video card, which is a 5570 for now, small yes but it does decent. When I do upgrade in the spring/summer when I get another job (I do summer yard work) I will be aiming for a 7850 2G model depending on what else is out there in that price range (150 to 190 dollars).
One thing I forgot to state in my original post is right now I'm working off of a 320 USD budget.
And as far as the Corsair being able to deliver an actual 500W, I don't know but I have heard that it is one of the best PSU brands out there, I still have the opportunity to return it and buy something else, like a 600W by the same brand if you all think I should. (only 10 dollars more)
