I would not recommend buying anything that includes a Diablotek PSU... To quote a review of one:

With the PHD650, Diablotek seemingly tried to polish a turd with a turd and as such we got the expected outcome, a pile of crap. Given the horrible build quality of the unit and poor component selection of the unit that is hardly a startling result. With a current price of ~$49.99, users would be better off taking their cash and setting it on fire rather than buying this unit. There is quite literally no price point or situation where the Diablotek PHD650 should be a consideration for users as it failed almost every test possible today. Retailers and e-tailers should be ashamed to be selling such a product.

The fact it is a tech deal and that the member can change the PSU if they so chose to do that. I also will say I am not suggesting the PSU is of good quality but the basic build is what the post is about. Changing the PSU would be a good ideal so that the system is stable for the user. Spend a extra 70 dollars or so and buy a good quality name brand PSU to safe guard your investment. Keep the Diablotek PSU for emergency purposes only.
