RE: this brand just pondering about a new build. Looking at the PSU as I don't overclock etc .. prob just a average $250-280 i5 CPU. 2 drives + a SSD. I could just get the $89 one right 650W, under Computer Lounge theirs start at $300 and is a 750W at least.

If you won't add in a graphics card you can drop down a model to the 450W safely, the ones I linked will run any single GPU plus the components you mentioned easily. Corsair are good but most of their best PSU's are made by Seasonic anyway, go direct to the source. An $89 corsair 650W will be that cheap for a reason but if you want it google the model number and look for some reviews, if it looks favourable then buy it. Personally I'd go with the ones I linked.

If it is Corsair, and it is $90 I don't know that I'd trust it.

Been buying Antec lately anyway....got a 500w $60 just the other day for a non-gaming PC. (That was trade though)

Corsair is now ....just...another...brand . :2cents: Nothing special or great about some of their cheapies
Although a $90 PSU is good enough for 95% of users . In fact , most PSU's out there in dayly use are really cheapies & still work just fine

If looking at reveiws, look for reviews where it is a proper tech inspection, not just some unboxing & plugging in .
