I would get the Corsair. I have never heard of Fortron. Even better if you could get a SeaSonic, Antec, XFX, or high quality Rosewill (80+ Bronze at least). 500-550W would do fine too.

So both of the reviews are about Raider series one is for 750 the other for 650 w , and in the review of 650 they are actually recommend it ? so i`m kinda lost here i cant really follow what u are talking about ... or i just cant understand u:)

It's usually a good brand of psus, that series "raider" has mixed reviews.
That's what i pointed out, see what the cheapest of those two, probably will be the corsair cx600w, so get the coirsair, 500-600w is plenty for your setup, in fact if you can get the xfx 550w pro, it will be the best for you.

+1 to the XFX 550W Core Edition.
I run a similar and probably more power hungry set up on an XFX 450W Core Edition PSU.

okay but the site where i`m going to buy my components doesent have XFX so they have 1st. 550WThermaltake Smart ActivePF, 2nd. Corsair Builder Series™ CX600 V3 and almost double the price this one - 600W, CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold (and the Fortron PSU-s) so thats why i`m wondering between this two ...

I'd just get the CX600V3 then if you can't find a site with the XFX.
