Gross. Aspire PSU's aren't that great. Too flashy and the construction quality isn't that good. The plugs are loose and the sleeving is decent at best. I would know, I own one of those.

Get this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104934

The FSP Group AX500-A Blue Storm PSU is only $89.99, and it'll be the best 500w you'll spend in your life. The wiring, sleeving and plugs are professionally done with the best quality. The construction is nice and you definately get more than what you pay for. Simply put, it's the best 500w PSU you'll ever find for that price, all the while balancing performance, reliability and quality.

No the mesh does not light up, but that PSU has really cool blue fans. Goes perfect with my comp.

Well, if you get green fans, and combine that with the blue PSU lights, I'm sure it will look great.

Show us a pic once you're done.
