Please review this rig and suggest a PSU for it

While the CX 430 is good for very tight budgets, it uses bad capacitors and has a high failure rate. This is why I would never recommend it over the XFX 550W, which is made by Seasonic (one of the best PSU brands).

I have an xfx 550w but he doesnt need than many watts. He could go with a lower wattage, but the corsair 430 is cheap and ok. I do recommend a quality brand but 450 to 500 would also be fine watt wise.
