I plan on replacing my old PSU, the 

Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550 550W ATX12V SLI CrossFire Power Supply 

with the following: 


XFX TS Series P1550SXXB9 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Active PFC Power Supply


Is this a good choice?

XFX PSU's are well regarded and normally decent.  They are made by Seasonic who are one of the better PSU manufacturers.  I can't find a review of this actual model yet, but I can't think of any reason that it would be anything other than a competent 550w 80+ Bronze PSU.


However, the question of whether it's a good choice within a particular system could only be answered if we have the system specs.

Full system specs, use (overclocking? SLI/Crossfire?), location and budget please.

If I am helping you but failed to reply within 24 hours, send me a PM.
