SeaSonic S12II 430 vs. Antec VP450P vs. Corsair CX 430

Hi everyone,
I am building my first own gaming rig.After much research,i am now unable to decide between the above 3 PSU's(SeaSonic S12II 430,Antec VP450P,and Corsair CX 430)
Please tell me which is THE best psu between these three:
1.Sesonic:SeaSonic S12II 430
2.Antec:Antec VP450P
3.Corsair:Corsair CX 430

Antec and Corsair are about the same price(Rs.3000)[$55] while sesonic is Rs.3600[$65]. I am on a tight budget,so if sesonic is not really worth for the extra bucks,the i would like to avoid it.

Btw,my remaining rig is a i5 3470,a asus mobo with B75 chipset,4 gb ram,a optical drive,1 tb hitachi HDD,18.5" 1366 X 768 monitor,and Gainward Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 1GB.

Edit:I by mistake posted thread on graphic and display mods could move thread

  1. The SeaSonic is the best of the three but also the most expensive. If budget allows, pick the SeaSonic. Otherwise go with the Antec.

    The Antec model is better quality. The CX series is the bottom of the heap for Corsair.
  5. Because the CX series were built for basic systems, not high performance systems like a gaming rig. Read the Corsair site on CX.
  6. Can you explain whats difference between Antec and Sesonic?

    The PSU is the foundation for the rest of your system. I always recommend picking the best PSU that is within your budget.
  11. Thanks for your speedy answers guys.
  12. If I go with the above specs and if I overclock my gpu moderately then will the seasonic s12ii 430 be able to deliver ??? Also , the seasonic has no OCP ... So , is that gonna be an issue if I OC ???
  13. I started out with a Corsair CX430 as just a temp PSU, but i kept upgrading and its still rock solid with a FX 8320@ 4.5Ghz and two HD 7850's later lol, makes sense since i didn't push the voltage that much on the CPU and left the GPU's at stock core clock (overclocked the RAM) due to the amount of heat generated. So that's about 180 watts for the CPU and just under 100 watts per GPU lol... so thats just 47 "clean" watts left for two WD blacks, 840 Pro, and 5 120mm fans running at supper low speeds. Its really pushing it, but it has never failed me in the last year and a half... and i check the Event Log once a month. Also I've used it in 90 degree weather with only a fan blowing on me (the AC was out for two days lol) with no throttling problem at all (55C CPU, 80C GPU after 3-4 hours of playing Crysis 3). Granted, i also have a power strip that also has power correction and filters.
