  1. Best answer
    The PSU is over priced in my opinion. You could get a 750 watt gold certified Rosewill capstone from new egg for 99$
    . http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182073. Also the 280X is sold out everywhere i got one before the big price increase and shortage and i havent seen any instock since.
  2. instead of a rosewill i would get a seasonic (the best psu manufacturer). likely cheaper than the corsair and just as reliable. or a product from xfx (since seasonic makes xfx psus).

    you can still get the r9 280x from certain suppliers. for instance ncix has one brand in stock still.
