PSU Upgrade Offered for Free--Should I Take It?

I had to RMA my OCZ 600W ModXStream Pro, however, OCZ can't replace it. Instead they have offered me a OCZ 780W ModXStream-B. It is a slightly older unit and is re-certified, but still will keep the warranty.

Should I take it? I need to reply to them soon.

AS long as it has ALL the RIGHT connections for your current and maybe your next upgrade ,,, why not...:)

Other options are to wait until my previous PSU or a current similar one becomes available again (they are back-ordered/out of stock).

Connections seem almost exactly the same:

OCZ 780W ModXStream-B:
* 1 x 20+4-pin ATX
* 1 x 4+4-pin CPU(supports double CPUs/supplies stable voltage)
* 2 x6-pin PCI-E

Modular Connectors:
* 1 x 4+4-pin CPU
* 2 x 6-pin PCI-E
* 6 xSATA
* 6 x Peripheral
* 3 x Floppy

OCZ 600W ModXStream Pro:
* 1 x 20/24-pin ATX
* 1 x 8-pin CPU
* 1x 4-pin CPU

* 1 x 6-pin PCI-E
* 1 x 6+2-pin PCI-E
* 4 x Peripheral
* 2 x Floppy
* 6 x SATA

How quickly do you need the replacement? If you can afford to wait, then wait for the one you want.

I'd go for the 780W deal myself..
