My vote goes to the OCZ because it's fully modular and has 80PLUS GOLD efficiency.

About the same, they are both quality power supply units, the 80plus gold is a good option.

I prefer the OEM (i.e. Seasonic) that Corsair uses for the now discontinued CMPSU-750TXV2 that you've linked to.

OCZ uses an obscure OEM, Great Wall, for their OCZ-ZX850W.

Both models have a 5 Year warranty.

If you don't have much room in your computer case to hide the extra unused cables for the Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 then get the OCZ-ZX850W.
