    Maybe, maybe not...

    What WILL make difference immediately is what I stated.

    Well, ofc modularity and efficiency add up in cost, so it's normal they cut in components quality... (I guess efficiency comes from more components rather than their quality, but please correct me if I'm wrong here)

    Though I think I should go with better built PSU rather than more "accessorized" ones, so does anyone know about XFX's inrush current and hold-up time? I know I'm focusing on minor things, but hey I'm just asking

    I guess higher hold-up time would be useful if AC goes out for some milliseconds then comes back again, it happens here from time to time, you know...

    Hi guys! I took a break to gather information about other components. Now that those are settled, I've come back to ask you more: has anyone here bought and tried a V550? I want to hear your first-hand opinions!

    I am more tempted by XFX's higher amperage and its tried-and-true design, so that's why I need your feedback

    On the other hand, I've found Corsair's RM550 for cheap, but my focus is more on those two units...! Thanks for reading and I'm sorry if I'm almost necro-posting, but I didn't feel like opening another thread!
