Which one is better? I prefer Corsair, but I need to build a computer for my friend on a really really low budget, and I have it down to these two. I feel like he will want more then 400w if he ever wants to upgrade to a decent GPU, and I'm pretty sure OCZ is good.

What do you think?

  1. OCZ is a good psu company that makes good ram. I would build a computer with some extra watts psu because in the future he might want to upgrade to sli gpu combo or a better one that requires more watts
  2. Best answer
    corsair is really a 450w unit that will peak at 490w so its not really your typical 400w PSU

    the OCZ offers two less molex connectors, one more PCI-E, and is modular for easier cable management. they also have a rep to have louder fans (but not in every unit, its more hit and miss).
  3. Yeah, I like the single rail on the Corsair, but he gets a bigger combo deal with the OCZ it acutally ends up being cheaper, he doesn't have a big bad ass rig so I think I'm just going to go with the OCZ it seems decent enough, it has all the cables he needs, and his case has bad cable management so the modular PSU will help.
