I need some advice.

I need to invest in a new psu for my homebuild (specs in ther "more info" link), in addittion im contemplating upgrading my gpu to the gtx 4 series

Im torn between the corsair vx550 or hx650

Which do you think would be ideal for my current build and would be a good investment for the future.

Im leaning heavely towards the hx650 due to the 52a 12v rail.

Any help would be much apprecited :)

The HX650W is also modular... I'd definitely go for the HX650W.

The 550 is more than enough for your system, though I personally always prefer getting the more powerful one if you can afford it in case of any upgrades you may make in future, that and when you one day get a new system, there is a chance the PSU can still be reused as it is powerful enough
