It would be enough to power your rig but there are so many options in that price range that are so much better in terms of quality.

Both are great PSU's, but the truth is that 600+ watts is not necessary. He could get the Corsair 520w unit and save himself $40. Most rigs - even power hog Pentiums w. a couple of big GPU's and all the trimmings - don't use over 300w or so at peak, although it is good to have a little headroom. IMO, if Corsair made a similar 300-350w unit, I'd buy one immediately.

What you want to look for is best efficiency, low ripple, and stability while keeping itself cool, preferably with lower noise.


EDIT: Unless you plan to use a 2900 XT GPU - rated for 215W not o/c'ed.
