More about comparison
  1. Both corsair and PC Power and Cooling are reputable brands, you really couldn't go wrong with either one. In this case go with the PC Power and Cooling because it is the same price after the mail in rebates and has 500w compared to 450w.

    However if you aren't planning on collecting the mail in rebates then you might go with the Corsair one and save yourself 10$
  2. Go with the 500. You might need the extra power at a later point.
  3. Both are excellent PSU's... i would go for the corsair simply for the 120mm fan.
