Hello, great intelligent folkes. Wondering that if you could choose between buying either a OCZ SXS 500 watt, or a Corsair HX520 watt power supply for $50 Canadian dollars...which would you choose (as in better for reliability, power etc.) I thank you, in kind, for all responses.
Thanks "Davcon" for your input and the link. It's listed on our local Kijiji as "new in box-never used" for $50. As well as the OCZ model I listed above, except in the ad it says he used it for a couple of months. So I take it your recommendation is the Corsair model?
Unfortunately Davcon, the Corsair sold on Kijiji by the time I emailed the guy selling it. Damn. Oh well...so I guess I'll settle for the OCZ. I think it's still a pretty good deal. My specs currently are:
current P.S.: generic brand 500 w
O.S. Vista Ultimate 64 bit
Processor: AMD Phenom X3 8400 (older processor but runs good)
Vid Card: XFX Radeon HD4770
RAM: 2x2GB Kingston PC2 6400 (800 mhz)
Optical: LG DVD 16x writer
a 120mm case fan, 2 92mm led case fans.
(2) 80 seagate 80 GB hard drives (not much storage internally but I have an 500GB external H.D. Again, thanks for your responses.
P.S. currently playing COD-Black ops at low settings and no stuttering in the game. Played MW1 and 2 and Battlefield:Bad Company2 without any problems either. Totally surprised me.
