Hey everybody I am in the very last stage of building my new pc and I am stuck on deciding between these two psu's the xfx I have read has mixed reviews (it is single rail, not modular) the other choice is the OCZ ( modular, single rail) both meet my wattage needs, the only big difference between them other than modular and not modular is the price, xfx is cheaper by 30 dollars than the OCZ, for 30 more i dont care about modular but if the xfx isn't going to last then i guess i'll go for the OCZ.


Please give me your suggestions and tell me which you would choose ( if XFX is reliable or not). Thanks for reading all this, and have a nice day

Which units in particular are you looking at? All XFX units are Seasonic built and most are quite good. OCZ has a large product range so i have no idea which one you are considering, they have some alright units and some superb units so please be more specific.

I would go with this one if those are the only two that you will consider. Personaly I would not buy it for myself but everybody has thier preferences and budget. I have always used Antec and had very good service from thier psu's but they might not fit in your budget.

hunter is being charitable. I would have described the OCZ range as "from excessively mediocre to "pretty good".

Between any OCZ and similar XFX PSU; XFX always.
