Hello. I would just like to know which of the Rosewill Xtreme Series 950W (the one with two fans) and Corsair TX750W power supply would would choose for a Phenom II x4 945 with a 460GTX 1Gb, maybe two in SLI, 4Gb of DDR3 1333Mhz, a 7200rpm hard drive, a DVD drive and 3 case fans. The Rosewill power supply is currently the Shellshocker deal on Newegg.ca and is free shipping.

The Rosewill power supply has 20A on four 12v rails, not only on one.

The Corsair has 60Amps +12V and the Rosewill 67.5Amps +12V - about 78watts difference despite that 200W 'labeled' difference.
Rosewill PSU has a 1 year warranty. Corsair has a 5 year warranty. Both have 4 PCI-e video card power connectors.
There are lots of independent reviews of the Corsair 750TX like this one @ Hardware Secrets

Yea thanks for pointing that out... i should have said it has 20A on +12V1,+12V2, +12V3 and +12V4 respectively... whereas what i said makes it sounds like it's 20A in total :)

And the usable power difference will shrink at operating temperature. The Rosewill is rated for full power at 25 C; the Corsair at 50 C.

Corsair, by all means.
