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

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.

Because the CX series were built for basic systems, not high performance systems like a gaming rig. Read the Corsair site on CX.

Was that a question? Are you asking if Seasonic is worth the price? Answer: yes. Clearly since we're recommending it.

The PSU is the foundation for the rest of your system. I always recommend picking the best PSU that is within your budget.
