The PC P&C would be my choice unless its power is absolute overkill for your rig and the 24 euros can be used for something else. I would not consider used!

Go with the P&C if you can use that much power. It is a very solid power supply and is a steal for that price since it is only a couple of percentages shy in only one category of getting a Gold rating in energy efficiency.

I did this same search less than 6 months ago, I read quite a few reviews and found that the P&C power supply stood with the best of them.

That being said I agree with rolli, if you aren't going to come close to using 950W then there is no reason to buy this. Efficiency gets worse quickly if you draw less 70% of the total wattage output of a PSU.

The 650w is overkill for your specs

U mean that my PSU will die faster if i dont use 950 W ?

From Pc&P

600W is 74E + ship
750W 92E +ship
950W 107E + ship

600W is 63E
750W 92E
950W 100E

No he means that the efficiency is less at lower loads. With 950watts and a system that pulls most likely less than 400watts average you will be running 30-40% load.

It will still run on any 500-550watt quality PSU just fine. The TX Corsair PSU's are quality.
