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) OCZ Agility 3 60gb SSD 250gb sata2 hdd 200gb sata2 hdd 500gb sata2 hdd CIT Blue mars case maplin cold cathode kit and a few LED case fans. dvd-rw drive
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.
