Generic model? IMHO, never cheap out on a PSU. A good one is more reliable, lasts longer, can much better handle power eating GPU's. And is more efficient.
Like I said, you're preaching to the choir here. If you read my replies, I didn't pick it, I only came in after the fact. My pick was the Corsair that got good reviews on a wide range of sites, I don't expect this one to be an issue.

When I built a PC I also chose a Corsair Gold, I believe 850Watts, far above what I ever expect to need. Super efficient. It does predate the problem period. But when I put in a newer, faster GPU card, I knew I didn't have to worry about power. Oh, and I wasn't aiming the comments at you - I goofed in what I replied to.

The final chapter has been written. As I figured, the Corsair power supply dropped in and worked perfectly. I think my grandson has a new respect for buying the cheapest alternative. :D

I would have been very surprised if it didn't, the old one was a 550W Corsair.
