This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: Perfect budget PSU for single GPU rigs (most gaming rigs).
High quality appearance.
Plenty of power for single GPU rigs, without an excessive amount of extra connections.
Low cost, especially with rebate.
Cons: No room for future expansion, most connections will be used.
Only Bronze certified.
Depending on your case configuration, you may need to use two sperate sata power lines as the connectors are somewhat close to each other. This may limit your options for the 5 sata connections as 2 are on one line and 3 on the other. Not really a con, just be aware.
Other Thoughts: My Case routed beautifully with this supply as I had the perfect amount of connections with no excess to tuck and hide.
If you know you will ever only need 1 GPU, get this supply!
If you won't need dedicated graphics or are running a low power GPU in your rig, the 430W option will be slightly cheaper.
I feel like I just said rig a lot.
