Corsair is usually really good, but I've never heard of their VS series and it's not even 80 Plus certified.

I'd get the CX600 at a minimum:

The GS600 will be more than good enough, but I also think it's a bit overpriced. Buy it if you like the lights. Buy the CX600 if you want to save money. Consider the HX650 if you want more connectors, gold certification, and a semimodular design for about the same price as the GS600.
