More about corsair hx650 seasonic x650 better
  1. Seasonic in my opinion. Better efficiency - I would not mind either though.

  2. Hello nsesh;

    Either one is an excellent choice. Corsair is using Seasonic internals.
    Corsair has a 7yr warranty.
  3. either one, get the cheaper of the two
  4. 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.
  5. Yup, better go with seasonic. A slightly cheap then Corsair.
  6. No one makes a better unit than Seasonic. Not even CWT who males Corsairs new stuff
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks for your opinions friends. I have another doubt is 650 enough for my configuration r need 750.
  9. 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?

    dont know the exact price i think it will be 21k to 23k in India. but we really need 6950 for 23 inch monitor?

    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).
