Hey guys, Im shopping around for a new build and I got two PSUs to consider..

Corsair CX600 600W Power Supply
http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX30800(ME).aspx?cc=1

or

Antec Basiq BP550 Plus 550W 24PIN ATX 12V Modular Power Supply Active PFC
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41979&vpn=BP-550...

Both are with MIR's but the 600W ends up 10$ cheaper and has 50 more watts..

In terms of quality and reliability, is the CX600 a MUCH BETTER DEAL, good for the price, or not worth it even if its cheaper?

Thanks!

my build:
gigabyte x58a-ud3r
12GB 3x4gb OCZ Gold DDR3
eVGA GTS 450
1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
i7 960
antec300 case

CX600 should be good. But in that segment, Corsair VX550 rules!

Interesting.. but googling prices gives me a 2x more expensive for the VX550 :p  Budget here, budget! :)

the antec is modular, its 80 plus certified, and comes with a three year warranty

the corsair is not modular, its not certified for 80 plus and has just a one year warranty
