Is This PSU Reliable or is there Better One?

Hey guys so i have a build ready to order and i showed it to my friend and he said PSU was bad. Is there a more reliable one than this one cuz i dont want my pc to blow up. :lol:


The PSU is a XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V/EPS12V Power Supply. If there is a better one please try to let it be around the same price.

  1. That's a great PSU.
    Should be more than enough for a single GPU unit.
  2. Go ahead and get it. XFX PSU's are made by SeaSonic, which is a reputable brand. Also, what are the specs of your build? It may not be enough to power it.
