As I said in your other thread, 550W is all you need. You claim you want to get a 750W to "future proof", but cheaping out on a power supply is doing the exact opposite. A high quality 550W will probably last you longer than a mediocre 750W.

If you really want a cheap-ish 750W, the Corsair Vengeance you linked in your other thread is the best option IMO.

Yeah, it's not a bad PSU by any means. But the corsair is $15 cheaper and in general is as good or better.

I guess I'm confused as to why you'd start three different threads asking about PSUs only to ignore the advice you got.
