Seems like my GameXStream 700W PSU is dying, so I am looking at the CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V PSU.

The specs for both appear comparable to me, which implies that the Corsair will be compatible with my system. Just wanted to post respective specs here as a sanity check in case I'm overlooking an important difference between the two.

If anyone sees any important difference, please holler. Thanks!

. The Proper Form-Factor

. The Proper Physical Size

You are good to go as the Corsair PSU you have selected, like all of our PSUs, are compliant to the most recent ATX specifications.
