Anyhow, for a Gold cert 550w Corsair RM series, I think $40 bucks is a damn fair price. It's a MIR which I've had good luck with when it comes to Corsair FWIW. Anyhow, if you don't need a lot of wattage, this would sure beat out paying close to the same for a CX(M)430 or equivalent.

JonnyGuru is a good place to look instead of making assumptions. It is a CWT design though...
You'd be surprised how cheap even high quality PSUs with 100% Japanese capacitors cost to manufacture. I've seen the Seasonic G 550 for $45 after MIR or the EVGA G2 550 for $50 after MIR. The RM550 may be dated and not the best PSU by todays standards, but you can definitely do worse.
