I heard corsair was an excellent brand in PSUs and have decided to get the corsair CX600. Anyone have any experience with this PSU or maybe could recommend something better? according to the PSU calculator I should be OK with this wattage even at 50% again capacitors.

Corsair is an excellent brand with PSU's that range in the "good" to "excellent" depending on the line. The CX line is Corsair budget line which is excellent compared to units in its price range when they're on sale but are good none the less when compared to higher quality units. They're serviceable and will do its job and provide its rated power. They're really attractive when they're on sale but not so much when they're not...

Here's a few in the $69.99 price range that are much better in quality.

Well that CX 600 its more a ~500W unit. It delivers 480W on 12V rail and that is used the most by new PC's.

I also read a review that Cx 600 wsnt a great PSU compared to 430 and 500.

If you could tell me what is your system i can help you more.

Even though if it is in 600W range XFX 550W Core Pro 54$ would be great.
