PSU, I Choose You!

So I'm wondering what PSU I should get for the following system:

i5 2500k OC'd to 4.3ghz-4.5ghz
Asus p8p67 pro
Gigabyte GeForce GTX570 OC v2 ( with possible further OC)
WD CB 1tb HDD
Asus 24x dvdrw drive
g.skill ripjaws-x series 8gb (2x4gb)
Haf 922 /w extra side fan and bottom fan
Scythe mugen 2 cpu cooler


I'm thinking I roughly only need about 550w, but I'd like a bit of headroom so I'm aiming for 600-650w. Prefer the best price/performance. Rig is mainly for gaming.

Here are my options so far:

Antec TruePower 650w

Antec HCG 620w

Or a more expensive

Corsair HX-650


Which of these would be the better to opt for?

Thanks.

More about choose
  1. Out of those, i favor the HX 650, HCG 620, and TP650.

    You might also want to consider XFX models as well since they're priced good and have excellent internals to boot.
  2. $130 for those two which would be around $90 on newegg.

    If you're seriously going to pay $130 then go for this power supply.
    Seasonic X650
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088&Tpk=seasonic%20x650

    One of the best power supplies out there.

    You won't even need to worry about "power issues" even with insane overclocks with this thing unless you're getting another 570.
  3. I would buy it from Newegg, but unfortunately they don't ship to Australia.
  4. Best answer
    In that case, i'd take the Seasonic M12II 620 , XFX XXX 650, Corsair HX650, Antec HCG520.
  5. Thanks for the input, I think I'll go with the XFX after reading some good reviews on it. The Seasonic I couldn't really find much information on which made me a bit skeptical in choosing it.

  7. Seasonic is the OEM for the best psu's xfx,corsair,antec, etc has to offer. They basically are the best if not the best psu manufacturer in the world (though others are catching up).

    Good choice and thanks for selecting me as the best answer! weeeeeeeeeeee
