    Is the psu for the rig in ur system specs or another rig? For the rig in the specs 500 W is already overkill unless you plan upgrading it too,

    I would stick with the Corsair, one of the best made PSU's out there.

    a corsair 450VX could power your current rig comfortably a 500w purepower Tt is power my rig and has pushed alot more watts then you will use in that rig.

    (phenom quad core@2.8ghz and 3x3850s on the Tt)
