So long as its kept clean, that is very realistic. Which is why Corsair (At least in NA) has up to 5 years warranty on there HX/AX units because they stand behind the realibility of their products.

With a dust filter any PSU made by Seasonic should last you 5+ years (Seasonic, Antec, XFX and Corsair branded PSU's are made by Seasonic)

What about this?
FSP FSP650-80EGN 650W 80+ Gold
Anything good?

It just sucks to buy a premium PSU if it's not gonna hold longer than a "standard" one.

Antec = Delta
XFX = Seasonic
Corsair = CWT/Seasonic split



As for the FSP unit, I havent' seen much on the net on its internals so its hard to say. I won't recommend something that I have no knowledge on. I do know that FSP does have some good platforms out there. Just not sure about that one.
