So I found there two great deals at the same price but different capacity and efficiency,

SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W 80+ Gold - $55 AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W 80+ Bronze - $55 AR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So I need some opinion on which one has the better value as well as energy saving for lesser electric bill?

The system I'm building is
ASUS P8Z77-V LK
Intel Core i5
Nvidia EVGA GTX 560ti
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm
Samsung 830 128GB SSD
4x4gb Kingston HyperX T1
RAIDMAX Seiran ATX-902WB

Thank you :hello:

The Seasonic is modular and 80+ gold. If you won't SLI I would pick the Seasonic over the Antec. @Abkaflab the Seasonic has 2 6+2 pin pcie connectors. That will not work for sli/cf since most cards need 2 6 pins. You would need 4 6 pin connectors to sli/cf, which the Antec has.

CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE for $30.

Not in the same league is the Seasonic, but good enough. 2 pcie's and $30 AR.

Just bought one (newegg) for a thrifty build. Not ideal for SLI/CF, but if you can 'settle' for a single card ... this is a great deal.

Good Luck !!

ps. Almost forgot - $100 for Intel 330 SSD 180 GB. This is an awesome deal ( (I own one and love it) about to buy, have not yet pulled the trigger on Newegg).

There are adapters for molex to 6 pin, but tha Seasonic isn't really powerful enough for 2 cards. I would want at least 650W for that from a good brand.

I don't think I need SLI and 750w is kinda overkill for my build which is gonna need no more than 500w (according to the online psu calculator).
I noticed the cx600 too but I read some reviews to avoid corsair cx series. But if it's only $30 I doesn't hurt to give it a shot.

Is there much difference in terms of electric bill if I use 80+ gold instead of bronze?
