    Default I've heard things about my PSU.

    I have the TR2-0600P

    (http://www.thermaltake.com/Power_Sup...nze/Design.htm)

    I've heard that it's good and I've also heard that its bad?
    so anybody have any information?

    It's neither.

    Somewhat in between, it's a low-end CWT, probably GPK, it's a mediocre unit.

    was planning on OCing the GPU just afraid my PSU will send dirty energy to the GPU and damage it somehow

    This PC only takes around 200W max. So there is more then enough room to OC.

    The real problem is that you never should have bought a mediocre 600W in the first place. It was much better to buy a mainstream or high quality 300 or 400W PSU for the same money.

    Group design means that the voltages aren't independent regulated. Which in this case means that the 5V and 12V are regulated as one. This is a problem if there is much load on the 5V and almost none on the 12V or visa versa. That will cause bad voltages regulation.
