Before I ask my question let me show you my PC specs:
Case: Predator G5900
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
System Type: 64 Bit
Motherboard: H57H-AM2
HD: 600 GB
PSU: PS-6451-5AE 500W
CPU: Intel Core i7 870 @ 2.93 GHz
GPU: HD 5570
RAM: 6.00 GB

I need help choosing a power supply because I'm getting the GTX 660 which I would not trust my current power supply for that and future upgrades like a bigger hard drive and cpu, but those can wait for now. Anyways, which power supply should I get out of these two:

-http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Modular-Bronze-CX6...

or

-http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Enthusiast-Series-Modular...

I know most of you are gonna say to take the TX series, but I was wondering if there would actually be a big difference from the TX to the CX series. Also, do you think I should get a 750 watt version or is that too insane? If it is I'll just take the 600 watt version.

TX series > CX series. The TX v2 series PSUs are manufactured by Seasonic, which is one of the best PSU manufacturers around.

This PSU from XFX is also manufactured by Seasonic

http://www.amazon.com/XFX-PRO650W-Bronze-Energy-Certifi...

It comes in other capacities, links are on that page.

If you want the best of the best, go with the Seasonic X series. They are 80Plus Gold certified, unlike the ones above which are only Bronze certified.

Either should work fine for your build, go with whichever you want/like best or fits best in the budget
