xfx core edition pro 550w is built by seasonic - well reputed and known to use higher quality in psu building. the corsair uses channel well technology's entry level platform for cx series, which are for budget builds. uses cheaper components to keep the prices low.

cx series? i don't know about v1, though. afaik, corsair uses cwt for all cx psus. since v1, corsair has released v2 and m series psus.
checked, it's cwt.

corsair does have seasonic-built psus. just not in cx series.

Alright, I've cheked the XFX PSU, and it has a 4 pin and 8 pin PCIe, I need a 6 & 8 pin, anyone reccomend any psus that have a 6 & 8 pin PCIe and meet the prices around this and doesn't let down the performance?

Also, XFX Core Pro edition has number of PCI-Express Connector = 3 x (6+2)Pin. If you can get it cheaper than Antec, go for it.

If this is the PSU you're referring to, http://tinyurl.com/6fgv5fp it has 3 PCI-e connectors that are compatible with both 6 and 8-pin PCI-e.

"What gpu are you using?"

The OP said the PSU is to power a GTX 770 in his first post.

While the Antec High Current Gamer 520W is also built by Seasonic, if the OP can spare the $5 to go with the 550W unit, he will get 5 more amps to work with on the 12 volt rail.
