Hi, I'm trying to pick a new power supply, and Seasonic X650 Gold and Corsair 650HX seem to be the best two PSUs in the mid range right now. My build is single GPU and needs about 350w, but I like a little overkill lol
Everyone seems to say the Seasonic is better.
Similar - Both manufactured by Seasonic - Modular - Long warranty (Corsair 7 yr, Seasonic 5 yr) - 12v rails have 52-54 A - Quiet?
Different - Seasonic is 3-6% more efficient than the Corsair (so maybe it'll save $1 a month on electricity) - Seasonic is 40-50$ more
Is there really any other practical reason why everyone is in love with the Seasonic X series? If that's it, I'd rather save money.

I've been using the CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W since 11/08. It is quiet and I've had no problems with it. Runs E8600, 2sticks of 2GB DDR2 RAM, 2 HS3870s in crossfire, TV tuner card, Video capture card, a DVDRW, 5 HDDs, and 4 120mm fans.
Get the Corsair. Since the 650HX is modular, which helps in cable management. Also has bullet-proof reliability.
