The Rosewill model http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The Antec Model http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I am looking for a reliable PSU. While there are much more expensive products for the same wattage, these two have caught my eye. I understand the Antec is more expensive, and a more reliable brand. But the Rosewill is less expensive, and it's specs check out fine to me. I want this to handle a Radeon 7850 and FX 8350. I just want it to not blow up someday, and provide the power needed.

It's very good for it's wattage, but I was looking for something more in the +600w range.

A HCG620 is based off the Seasonic M12II 620 which is near identical to the Seasonic S12II 620 which the Antec NeoEco 620c is based off of. Might as well go with the NeoEco 620c as the build quality is nearly identical and only a select few components were altered.

And both are worth the extra $10?

I don't really think either one of them is worth $10 more than the other. So which ever is cheaper.

However this is better than either of them:
NZXT Hale82 650W ($60 @ Amazon)
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-power-supply-hale8265...
This is a rebranded Seasonic M12II 650W (SS-650AM), which is superior to the M12II Bronze up to 620W. However the minimum speed of it's 12cm fan is 1000RPM, so the down side is that it is not that quiet.

IMO power supply is something you don't skimp on although it seems daily on this forum people try to do this i can't say if it's worth it only you can decide that :)

I have a terrible PSU atm, so I want something that won't make me nervous when upgrading and won't fail on me if there is a power surge. I only have $60-$75 (including shipping), and those two were the best I could find on newegg for my price range.

Hi - the PSU's recommended already are good n worthy.
However, you might want to also take a look at this as it nets to $39.99 after mir:

Tom

another option to consider is the Corsair (Seasonic built), but it is $64.99 after mir:

I've looked at the Antec Earthwatts before. For $40 it isn't bad. If it is somewhere near the others I'll take it.

The Antec is about equal to S12II based unit and is from Delta. It's a quality unit and it's worth it if you can get it for that price.

The only thing that bothered me about the Earthwatts was that it is not single rail. And I've been told it is a great unit by others, but I couldn't find much of a difference between the Rosewill and the Antec.

There is nothing particularly wrong with the Rosewill, but given similar prices no one is going to recommend the ATNG-built Rosewill over a PSU made by Seasonic.

The EA-650 green did get one good review from a competent source

As far as the rails go... I don't know if they are truly separate rails or just have separate protections. They are each rated for 450W though, so you will have a very hard time overloading one.

For $40 the Earthwatts is a good deal, I'm just not comfortable with having multiple rails though. Though minimal, the Rosewill seems to have better specs in everything. Though if the brand determines it's performance more than it's specs, the Neo Eco is the better choice.
