Seasonic in my opinion. Better efficiency - I would not mind either though.

Hello nsesh;

Either one is an excellent choice. Corsair is using Seasonic internals.
Corsair has a 7yr warranty.

The Seasonic is a newer more efficient design then the older one used in the HX-650.
Seasonic 80+ Gold and fully modular.
Corsair HX 80+ Bronze and semi-modular.

A no brainer really the Seasonic is cheaper atm.

Keep in mind that there's nothing wrong with "semi-modular". There's really no reason to make the main and CPU power cables modular. You are always going to need them.

Since you won't be adding a 2nd video card with that DZ68DB motherboard the 650W PSU will provide more than enough power for your system, with plenty in reserve.

What prices are you seeing on the HD650 & X-650 in your area?

it doesn't matter what size the monitor is, the issue is the resolution. You don't need an AMD 6950, an AMD 6870 can give you good performance at 1080p resolution. You also don't need a 650w unit. I power my system with an antec 550w PSU. My GTX560ti uses more power than the 6950 and my PSU just breaks 50% during gaming (around 330w).
