I'm looking to see which PSU is better. I do not care about the money spending on either, or the extra 50 watts, I would just like to know which would be the best out of these 3 power supplies in terms of the series:

http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/tx-series-...

http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/gs-series-...

http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/hx-series-...

http://www.corsair.com/en/power-supply-units/ax-series-...

Updated, forgot to mention AX. I'm looking to look for a list for least priority to highest priority of these PSUs.

Thanks,

- Storm

Technically the HX and TX are around the same build quality according to this tier list:

I would say go for the HX since money is not a factor and that it has a gold rating opposed to the TX which has a bronze rating.

The TX v2 series is the best price for a good PSU. EDIT : THIS ONLY APPLIES TO THE V2 VERSIONS. The normal TX is junk in comparison...

Technically the HX series is the best, most reliable and best physical components.

The GS is the cheaper, less reliable range that I would not suggest.
Corsair is a good brand but the GS is their cheap brand with inferior components and least reliability...

Hi - If you don't care about the $, then the AX is the best unit. Corair's top of the line.
In terms of value, i.e. bang for the buck, I think the tx v2 is the best

Since you asked for a list from best to worst then here it is:

1) Corsair AX-750 - Highest Quality, Tier 1 power supply, High efficiency
2) Corsair HX-750- Gold rating, high quality, bit expensive
3)Corsair TX-750- Around the same quality as HX, bronze rating, good price
4)Corsair GS-800- Not as good as the others

You could switch #2, and #3 but since you stated money was not an issue I put the HX-750 on top because of its higher efficiency rating. Anyways sure your not open to any other brands? There are some good PC Power and Cooling Power supplies and Seasonic power supplies.
