hello I recently ran into an issue with my rig resulting in me having to buy a new psu. Someone on here told me to go with the SeaSonic M12II 620watt psu. I just wanted to know what is the major difference between that one and the Antec HCG M Series HCG-620M? I only ask because newegg is having a sale on antec psu's for 15% off so if there practically the same I'm going with the antec one LOL. Any advice will be greatly appreciated thanks ^^

antec psus are usually(hcg-620m is made by delta if i am not wrong) great but seasonic are best!my vote to seasonic.

so should I wait till I get the extra 20 bucks for the seasonic one? Is it going to last me longer? I don't know much on psu's they seem to look about the same but if the seasonic is worth the extra 20 bucks I'll get that one then

If you can get a good price on the Antec HCG-620M there's no reason not to grab it.

Alright i just wanted to make sure if there was a difference between the two psu's i listed but if the antec one at 69.99$ is a good price and if it will suit my needs then ill grab it

well,620w isn't really needed.i trust xfx(seasonic)more than any other brands.they have really good quality and low failure rates.

will the antec last me a few years/few upgrades? or do you think i'll have to replace it in only a year or so? like I said only major thing I plan on doing is going crossfire if it can handle crossfire then it will last be forever LOL

alright thanks for your input this sale goes on for the next couple of days so I'll have to think about it some more. I have heard seasonic makes really good psu's. the only reason i'm interested in the antec is because its on sale and I don't have alot of cash lol

Alright thanks for your input like I said I don't have alot of money but if I need to spend an extra 20-40$ to get one that will last me for awhile then I'll have to do that. I just dont want to buy one and go to upgrade in the next couple months and have to already start thinking about buying a new psu LOL

Yes, infact it is plenty. The psu can easily power the 580, 680, and even the 7970.
