Corsair Have a Great build Quality and they are Quite... till they get old. I only buy Corsair for me, But If a budget were Very Tight I may change out.

I Now if you parts are in the realms of:
i5 3570k/2500k.
7870/660(ti)/7950/670(ti).
less than 3 hdd or less than 4/5 SSD.
1 optical disk.

Not over clocking to much and not going higher than those or looking to SLI/crossfire those you should be fine.

Jeez All are saying Corsair .

but what i was thinking that
cooler master -- 3 years warranty , 85 % efficiency , cheaper than corsair
corsair : 3 years warranty , 80 %EFFICIENCY , expensive than Corsair .

I think cooler master is only good on Paper ,
Corsair comes with " Good experience " .

Lol. Coolermaster outright lie about their psu's efficiency. If you want 85% efficiency get an FSP Raider or Seasonic M12ii.

I'd say thats the crowd has Given the best advise strangers on the internet can give on this topic. The choice is yours to make but we all feel if its a matter of a $10 or so then Cosair is the ride.

The best bit of wisdom I can give you on the matter of computer parts is "Buy Cheep Buy Twice." You almost aways do with gaming rigs.
