Which Power Supply is better ?

Hello,

I am upgrading my power supply to support a new Graphics card that I will be ordering.

These are my specs:

Bulldozer FX 6100
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT
Alpine 700w Power Supply
Kingston Something ram 1600 16gb
120 OCZ SSD
500gb Seagate Barracudia


I was looking at a new power supply as I need to update my graphics :


Here are the two I have seen

Which one would you recommend ?

Cheers

More about which power supply
  1. The OCZ one is a very good deal.
    Go for it.
  2. I havent had good luck with OCZ. Its a good deal for a reason. The Corsair will last longer and give you cleaner power.

    Hi -I'd go with OCZ in this instance, as it has good reviews form from a
    couple of reputable sites. See below (courtesy of johnnylucky.org):
