I am wondering which PSU below will fit my needs better including the ability to fit my future upgrades.

SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


My current setup is:
-Intel Core i5-2500K (O.C. to 4.0GHz)
-Nvidia GTX 560
-ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 Z68
-G.Skill Sniper 2x4GB, 1600
-Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SSD

My future upgrades include:
-Liquid-cooled CPU setup w/ Ivy Bridge i7 (O.C. past 4.0GHz)
-GTX 660 Ti (or something alone the lines of that when released)
-another copy of the Corsair SSD for Raid0


I understand that the 620W Seasonic PSU is sufficient for my current needs but am unsure if it will still be great for my planned future setup, which is why I have the Corsair 750W in mind.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or tips!

if money is not the issue the corsair psu is your best bet. it will sufficiently power any upgrade you wish to make. while the 620W seasonic will do for now, if you make the mentioned upgrades you will be cutting it close.

I would go with the Seasonic and put the $60 saved right towards that other SSD unless you might consider going SLI/Crossfire then definitely go with the corsair.

This one is also great

Both this one and the Corsair are really better, not only more power but also 80+ Silver. The one I posted is at a really good price at Micro Center. ($80 after rebates).

I think from the three, the Corsair is the best, for example because it's modular. So if you're willing to spend that money, go for it. Otherwise I would buy the 760 Silencer.
