When everything is said and done, I am quite pleased with the latest Mushkin power supply. It is a very capable unit that handled a dual core, dual graphics system with ease. All power rails fell into a very competitive range and the many features included allow it to live up to the "Mushkin Enhanced" name.
It also has a smooth appearance and the chrome finish will make sure that your windowed case will get a nice aesthetic boost when the power supply is mounted. While not mentioned earlier, the large bottom fan is gently lit with a blue LED, so this may play into your interior lighting scheme.
With regards to price, the MSRP of the HP-580AP is listed at US$147, but the unit can be found online for less than $120. At this price, it falls toward the bottom of the pricing chart when comparing with comparable models from all manufacturers. This makes it not only a stout performer, but a good bargain as well.
Bottom line... If you are planning on a power supply upgrade and are looking for high performance, there are an absolute plethora of choices available to you. If you are also looking for a bargain on a power supply that has high performance AND doesn't break the wallet, then make sure to put the Mushkin Enhanced 580w PSU at the top of your list. With excellent performance, no power fluctuations along any of the rails and a price that is close to the bottom of the pricing charts, you will be hard pressed to find a better deal.
No fluctuation along any power rail

Dual PCI-E graphics capable
