Hello, I'm trying to decide which PSU to get. They are all in the same price range, so it makes it more difficult. The reviews for all of them are acceptable, so I'm not sure which will work out better:

I'd go with the corsair, but the bfg could be manufacturered on the same line. Both specs are similar.
