Yeah, I'm personally thinking of getting the 550 one for a couple bucks more. The rails are nice and the reviews are all positive. The blue LED is also pretty nice.

Antec TruPower 2.0 isn't a bad value at all. Get the 430W version. I think it's only about $25.00 more and has 23amps on the 12v rail.

I would suggest this one.

They just recently lowered the price of this unit from $65 to $54, nice price drop. This unit also has dual +12v rails @ +12V1@18A, +12V2@15A.

These are awesome units, quiet, built like a tank, very stable rails.

Antec's TruePower 2.0 TrueControl 550W version is <$130 USD and has two separate 12V rails offering 18A each. It has only one fan, making it quieter, yet more power than the TrueControl 1.0.

I dunno dude... I'm sure it's OK but if you can just scrap up another $30 you can move into something a little better like the Antec I mentioned. Power supply is the last component you want to scrimp on, believe me.

Really, that's surprising. I know mine supposedly hates them as well yet I haven't had any problems. I bet you it would work fine.
