Here is the comparison of the PSU:-Don't judge by their price on newegg
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...
I have read about all of them. Corsair & Rosewill has more 4pin Molex Corsair 4x Rosewill 6x & little better in Efficiency and CM GX650 is cheap and has more watts and amp CM i600 has more watts & amps than Corsair. Now guys can you tell me which 1 is reliable for years.
Cooler Master GX 650w $59.99
Corsair CX600 $62.00
Rosewill RG630-S12 $62.04
Cooler Master i600 $65.98

I wouldn't go for any of those (the corsair being considerable at least).

This one is currently $69.99 and of MUCH higher quality. It's made by Seasonic.

Cooler Master is either hit or miss, their Silent Pro, GX V2 and V series lines are great, but most are mediocre. If I were, you, I would go for the XFX one linked, it has great quality.

I agree with jimthenagual. Seasonic has some really good PSUs.

Here is a great collection made of PSU reviews done. It also tells you who actually MADE the psu (coolermaster doesn't make psu's, they rebrand them, as many companies do). XFX gets theirs made by Seasonic, arguably the best maker right now.

Yeah, and they gave it an 8/10, with the following cons
-Loose voltage regulation, especially at 3.3V
-Bad performance at Crossload tests, somtimes down to 11.4 V
-High voltage drops at Advanced Transient Response Tests
-Only three peripheral connectors

So an 8/10 isn't bad, and it's a great price I know. You could justify buying it, and it may be just fine for you.

I'm just saying there is a PSU made by Seasonic getting praise in the industry for a few dollars more. My vote still goes to the XFX linked above.

It has a 5 year warranty, so that's a plus. Part of the reason they scored it an 8/10 I guess. Would I put one in my own system? Nah. There is better at around the same price point.
