    Alright for low power systems which you want to look good, crap for main use. Would not reccomend it for the system in your sig.

    The ULRTA X FINITY psus are good though!

    Go for a more reliable brand, such as (in order)

    1. FSP
    2. Seasonic
    3. Enermax
    4. Antec
    5. Tagan

    another thing if you have any ideas, do any of these PSUs have cables that are covered up with a cover or anything?

    No. Theyre sheathed usually, though.

    500W should be enough and allows for future upgrades.

    I am using an UltraX 500 in my main RIG and its just fine.

    I am running it 24/7 with far too many devices & Drives and its rock solid.

    I am happy with mine.
