What PSU is for me?

I have a AMD Phenom II X4 965 and a EVGA GeForce GTX 480. My budget is around $90. Modular would be nice but not a must.

    Really? That's horrible choice, it doesn't even have a basic 80+ certification and it's really only 550w at the most.

    This is the best deal going right now. 5yr warranty, 80+ bronze rated, Seasonic built, single 53a rail.

    $59.99 after rebate.
  2. +1 for the CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2
  3. +2 for Corsair.. Great value for money..
  4. That's a good deal. That said, I would get this instead though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095

    It seems to be better liked and is a modular design, other than that it is a very similar unit (same warranty etc). Either way you'll be all set.

    So you would pay an extra $30 for a less powerful psu built by the same company?

    Alrighty then, you make no sense whatsoever, lol.
  6. The only catch with this deal is that it appears to be the V1 PSU, which only has 2 PCIE connectors, instead of 4 connectors, which is what's on the V2 PSU.

    Which are you talking about? The first one I posted the TX650? It's def V2.
  8. I was talking about the TX750M
  9. @ geekapproved: Yes, I would buy the SeaSonic M12II over the Corsair, as the former is modular, which will make cable management easier; if there's a cable you aren't using you just unplug it instead of having it tie up space. 30W isnt going to make much of a difference one way or the other. It's also prefer to support a company that makes a product instead of rebranding it.

    Personally, I'd trade those insignificant 30W for a modular design, but to each their own. Like I said to the OP: "Either way you'll be all set. "
