DeusAres a b B Homebuilt system December 26, 2012 8:52:34 PM Yes, it will work. I suggest this PSU over the Corsair though. XFX 550W PRO550W Core Edition Single Rail http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&m... It's only a couple dollars more at NCIX. It's well worth the extra wattage. Furthermore, it's made with the same parts Seasonic uses in their power supplies. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
