Are Rosewill PSU any good? I found this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GL4UZK/ref=oh_details_o01_s01_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It wil lbe used on i5 3570k, Amd 7870. I've been reading all over the place that rosewill anything is not to be trusted.

A few places have suggested this as a much better alternative: http://www.amazon.com/SeaSonic-550-Watt-CrossFire-Certified-SSR-550RM/dp/B00918MEZG/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Don't judge based on brand alone - Rosewill has some great power supplies (Capstone, Fortress, Lightning). That said, while there's nothing terrible about the Green series, they're not particularly good, either. I'd describe them as thoroughly mediocre.

Given that the SSR-550RM is what I have, I feel obligated to recommend it wherever it's being considered. It's a fantastic power supply, although I wish some of its cables were a bit longer. Build quality aside, the Seasonic has some notable advantages over the Rosewill: particularly modularity and higher efficiency. These reduce cable clutter, heat, and noise.

But the Seasonic is also hella expensive now.

I think they ran out or something. Was about $80 when I looked at it. Anyway I looked around and found it on Newegg for 82.00 I beleive.

Also, when you say that the cables are shorter, would I have trouble connecting any part of it the motherboard or any other things in the case? Or is it just shorter and not as easily managed for doing looping through the back of the case? If that makes sense. This would be in a Mid size ATX based tower

Give this a look-see for quality reference.

Rosewill Hive 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply on sale at Newegg for $89 then add code: EMCXTXW27 to get another $20 off. $69 bucks for a bronze semi-modular PSU. I am thinking that this is a pretty good deal?

Rosewill is a budget cheap brand owned by newegg. They aren't specifically horrible but higher quality PSUs such as Seasonic, XFX, and others are nearly the same price and provide better quality overall as well as typicaly a better track record for reliability.
