Other Thoughts:

Anyone who has built a few PCs knows that bargain bin PSUs will ruin your day, However, no one wants to spend $100+ on a good PSU for a low-mid tier system, and that's where this series of PSUs comes in. The CX series power supplies work fantastically and don't cost too much. I prefer to use them in my lower-tier builds (typically using the CX430 or CX500) because of how cost effective they are. WHile the CX600 and CX750 are also good PSUs, if you need that much power, you may as well just make your day a little better and get a Modular PSU (the Corsair HX series is great!).

If you're looking for a good starting place for building a system, this is as good a PSU as any to go with! In the end, just find a brand that you like and stick with them. For me, that brand is currently Corsair. :D
