528w on a generic PSU which you should avoid anyway

$60 + free shipping

and you would be lucky to break 300w at full load with that set up

the seasonic actually has more power on its 12v rail (powers your CPU+ GPU) 42a vs 40a, is rated at a higher temp then the corsair, and offers more efficiency then the corsair; although both will do the job with no issue. the corsair really is more of a real-life 500w PSU.

The Seasonic S12II is one of the most popular and highly rated series of PSU's out there. It is the model that antec and corsair based their Neo Eco, HCG / older VX units off of.

The newer Corsair CX units aren't bad but they're just outclassed by the Seasonic S12 unit.

take that one and call it a day!
