Need Help: Power Supply Units
I am down to two power supplies.

Which one is better?

CORSAIR CX600M 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

an 80+ gold is better than an 80+ bronze. you will get much more stable power from it. Seasonic makes good PSUs and they don't usually cheap out on the components.

I like Seasonic but I'd be comfortable with either.

Seasonic is like the H&K of PSUs. High dollar, high quality.

both are sli ready but at 550 and 600 watts Im not too impressed. I always opt for larger then needed power supply. just in case I need it for future add-ons

Corsair 750watt $85

Corsair 650watt $90-20 rebate = $70

both have free shipping and will give you more bang for your buck

Seasonice makes the PSUs for Corsair so they're pretty similar in terms of quality. I like the Corsair models a little better though.

The CX series is Corsair's low end PSU line. I don't think they are made by Seasonic. If it was me, I would spend a little more and either grab a Seasonic unit or something from the HX/AX series.
