Default Power Supply

I have been searching for a good PSU for my upcoming computer build and I was wondering if this would be a good power supply....http://www.xionusa.com/product-power..._600W_2.0.html

It has some pretty cool features.

I haven't really heard of Xion, which is usually a bad sign, but it does look okay.
Usually you see, ones with L.E.D fans etc are the ones trying to hide a bad product.

Though yeah, they seem alright to tell the truth.

A good way to tell if it's crap is compare it to well known companies prices. if it's a lot lower it's usally crap. when buying a PSU it's usally better to go with the known companies.

That's a really nice power supply. AMD ready too. What are you going to do with 600watts though? Unless you are going for dual GPU support, it's overkill.

Well for now I am getting a single 7800gtx but when the prices go down I am going to add another and I was told that for SLI you should have at least 520 watts. This PSU comes in 500 and 600.

Dual 7800GTX would own with that 600Watts power supply. Get it.

So for the time being I will be fine running 600 watts with 1 GPU?
