But between the corsair vx550 and the silverstone st50f 500w, i was wondering which would be the best choice taking into consideration the ~$15 price difference.. Thanks

Although there are many good reviews about the vx550, ive heard that the vx series was actually made by CWT and not by seasonic. Is this something to be alarmed about?

Not at all. CWT made the PSU to the specifications Corsair ordered. If there was a performance or quality issue with the Corsair 550VX it would have long ago been noticed by the independent reviewers.
