Price is not the issue, they are about the same. After reading reviews and help here, for the money these two seem to fit best. The system is a 930, w/ 1 hd, 5770, 1 cd/dvd, 6gb ram, with minimal OC (for now)
At most I will add a second HD (maybe) and step up the OC a bit
In a year or so may crossfire, but by I would be willing to get a new PSU if necessary.
These two are close, and don't really understand the sense behind offering both from one company, but I do need to make a choice ... is one quieter? more stable? cools better? Thank you.
More aboutlast part
if maybe in a year your gonna add another graphics card you might as well get a 850 w psu now and anyway 580w is reccommended for that setup
Even CF 5770 would run fine on a good 550-600 watt. I'm not familiar with those two in particular, but what I would recommend is this one:
OCZ is not on my short list of quality psu's. It is false economy to skimp on quality, and my impression is that OCZ psu quality is spotty. I think there are better quality units available from Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic.
A good PSU is actually one of the most future proof pc components you can buy. I think I would get a good 650w unit up front.
