So, I'm going to be building this PC: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9oAe

I'm trying to save money, so I'm not sure which PSU to get. Currently I have the M12II on there, but I'm also looking at the OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W. Another choice is the COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600. So, it is "worth" to downgrade to these PSU's to save some money, and if so, then which one is a better choice? If you have any other suggestions for a modular power supply please include them.

Thanks guys!

Unless you're getting two of those 7850s, the M12II-520 is more than enough for your PC. I'm running an HD 6950 on one.

Is it worth saving another $20 from the 520W M12II and getting the 600W ModXStream?

The ModXstream has 2A more on the 12V rail, but 2 years less warranty, is lesser quality, and isn't 80+ Bronze. I think the higher quality and extra warranty are worth it, but you make the final vote with your money. ;)
