Looking for a 650w PSU

it needs to fit in this case
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197


here are 3 corsair PSUs i found. 1 of them is non-modular and one of them is non-PFC.
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006657&IsNodeId=1&Description=650w%20modular&bop=And&CompareItemList=-1|17-139-020^17-139-020-TS%2C17-139-031^17-139-031-TS%2C17-139-012^17-139-012-TS

the cheapest one is the non-modular one, but with PFC active

The middle one is modular, but it doesnt say anything about the PFC so i guess its unactive.

the most expensive one is obviously the best since its modular and PFC active, but im not sure about the size, is it too small?


this PSU is the one i can get bundled with the case im getting, but its expensive and 850w. im linking it because i guess it must be the perfect size if its in a bundle with my case.

    All of those power supplies will fit in the case you linked to, as that is a standard atx case, and those are all standard atx power supplies.

    As for the active pfc issue, they aall have active pfc, it's just an omission on newegg's part. Go to corsairs site to check if you need reassurance about that.

    I personally would go with the nonmodular 650 watt unit, as that would suit my needs. You might be planning a system expansion that would make the 850 w u nit more appropriate.

    thanks a lot for clearing that up! since im not looking for the best look, but the best bang for my buck, i guess ill stick to the non-modular one!
