Default Rosewill Power Supply

Since Newegg is have a great sale. I thought I'd upgrade from my generic psu to an aftermarket one. I found this. What do you guys think?

It's OK. You can get better quality units for about the same price. But then, it is better than your "generic" PSU.

What do you recommend? I only have 15 minutes before I HAVE to order one. I need it modular. Here are my specs.

Q6600 3.2GHZ
ASUS P5QL PRO Motherboard
PNY 8800 GT
320GB 7,200 HDD
1 DVD-RW Drive
4 UV Cold Cathodes with sound modules

I also will be need to be able to power the fans in the Antec 900. Modular is a must. I will need some room to upgrade in a few months.

Can you try to find something around 60-70? I don't need a LED fan. But, it has to be black or chrome and modular.

There's this, but I'd rather go with an Antec, PC Power & Cooling, or FSP PSU.

Wouldn't 630W be too much for my system?

Any other PSU fitting your requirements will be more expensive.

As long as it works, I don't mind getting it. My generic one is doing fine. I just don't feel too safe using it on my newer stuff. I'm upgrading my computer with a new case, hard drive and external bays. This is what was said about my power supply.

"After a rash of really odd problems, including BSODs, failures to POST, with little rhyme or reason to them, I installed Fresh Diagnose. Temps would run up higher than I liked, but all in all, not deadly by any means. While looking through all the tests and monitored sections with this software, I came across the voltages listing... 11.40v is NOT acceptable for +12... not on a good day. Also, the +2.5 is running at 2.19v... also not good. For those that don't understand the mandatory nature of correct voltages, trust me, these are NOT acceptable. I now have a new PSU on order from Newegg, as I don't want to RMA the whole friggin' case for just a silly PSU issue."

I haven't been that unlucky with mine. Will that Raidmax benefit me? I trust you guys. If you say go for it, I will.
