Good price, but not modular = no go for me. Once you go modular, you don't look back.

I just ordered 600W EVGA from BB, havnt picked up yet. now im debating, should i buy this one or that one. $10 different, did this one have better qulity than 600W? 600W already enough for me. 6700K, 1060 graphic card and few hard drive. but lots ppl said that EVGA 600W not good for every day gaming because there no heatsink on bridge or only have some sort of cheap stuff inside. could anyone share some opinion pls?

600w b is my daily driver. I have ai5 4590 and an over clocked 290x. I use way more power than you will. 600w should be fine for you.

600 watts is more than enough for single-card gaming -- even a GTX 1080 should be fine on a 500W PSU.

Both this PSU and the Best Buy one are roughly the same in terms of quality (both made by HEC) -- should be fine if you're not doing anything crazy like overclocked bitcoin mining. This one has a *slightly* better efficiency rating (82-85% instead of 80%) which makes no practical difference. Based on reviews for lower-watt B1 models, I think the 700W B1 does have a heatsink of the bridge (while the non-B version doesn't) if that concerns you.

EVGA is a good brand and as far as I know, none of their PSUs are junk. The ones in the "affordable" price range won't be as good as their top end stuff, but it doesn't mean it's bad or that it'll go up in flames. If you have an expensive gaming rig, it makes sense to spend extra to get a better PSU just in case, but for something mid-range going with something cheaper (provided it doesn't have any serious red flags in the reviews) is probably an acceptable level of risk

I also ordered the 600W EVGA from Best Buy that was on sale. I'm sticking to my original decision. $30, no rebate, for a well-received power supply with rewards points back seems like a really good deal.

People have said that it should be fine for most rigs, but since this is my first build I'm going to list my parts here so that if anyone else sees something wrong with it they can let me know.

I7-6700K (via Intel Retail Edge program that was posted here)
Phantek P400 Computer Case (got it on sale because of Slickdeals)
SanDisk 480 GB SSD (Got it on sale, thanks to Slickdeals)
EVGA 600W PSU (Sale, slickdeals)

To be purchased:
GTX 1060 (must have high reviews, not founders edition)
Z170 motherboard (should have at least 4 eggs on Newegg and 4 stars on Amazon, and exactly 6 SATA ports to match the power supply, and should not support Nvidia SLI)
DDR4 RAM (must have high reviews, be compatible with motherboard, and have a combination of clock speed and CAS latency that give a delay of 10 nanoseconds or less)

Since I've been trying to buy every part on sale I've been working on this build since mid-June, and will hopefully finish by July 29th so I can upgrade to Windows 10 for free with a Windows 7 key I have lying around from a dead laptop. I hope I can find RAM and a motherboard that go on sale before then, too.

I'll probably buy the graphics card anytime after that, but if I could find and purchase one before August 1st that would be ideal since then I could use Visa Checkout to get $25 off a purchase of $200 or more, which the GPU will definitely be.
