Antec and Corsair have good PSUs. You can add Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, Enermax to that list too.DigitalN00b wrote:I've researched Roswell, OCZ, Antec, Cool Master, and Corsair, but have also noticed a rediculous amount of bad reviews PSU's get.
If rebates are such a problem (they are for me), consider the price without the rebates.DigitalN00b wrote:"I didn't get my rebate" whine

■500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for AMD CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

Other than it's only an 80+ certified, and I'd need to send in the rebate form, getting it down to $50 seems like a good deal..
