My current PSU is badly aging and is failing terribly. So I'm looking at 2 candidates for a replacement.
The 'OCZ ZS 550 watt' or the 'Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK'

Which one would you buy for my system?
AMD FX-8120 @3.8GHz ~ 4.5GHz
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
8gb (2 x 4gb) kingston value ram 1333MHz
Asus EAH6670 (HD6670)

Whichever is cheaper they are both more than enough your system pulls under 400W at load

Corsair is a good brand. 600 watts is better considering that you might upgrade your VGA sooner or later.

I would go with the Corsair, 600w is better than 550 if you want to upgrade your other components later on.
