Better as in reliability? or just Watts? Because i think the 550W is just a waste of money since im probably not using more than 400

Still, if the rebate were to end at say 2am id be SoL. Because im probably only ordering after 3PM due to circumstances

It was actually another person answering a build list question I had. He recommended it over a EVGA 600W i think
