Part 2: should I pull the trigger on one of these? I'm thinking of building a rig in the September or Oct time-frame. On the one hand, I could sit on a PSU for a few months, and it wouldn't go bad, and this sounds like a great deal. On the other hand, $60 more isn't too much when spread over 6 months of waiting (pack my lunch a few more times each week and I've more than made up for it), which would net me slightly newer build designs that are supposedly more efficient ?
Also, I may not need 650/660W. My estimate is that my build will end up in the 490 - 510 range, in which case the x560 should be sufficient, yes?
