I saw couple threads saying diablotek is not trusted and i have had it for a while had no problem? but i dnt wanna burn my new cpu when i get it b/c the current pc i have is extremely old amd phenom 8400 x3. Can anyone tell me psu 600w around 30~57 dollars?

Corsair is decent, better than OCZ and Diablotec is bad as far as reliablity. Never cheap out on the PSU. It can really screw things up if it goes bad.

Most certainly. XFX is made by SeaSonic, one of the most reliable PSU brands on the market. :D

Yeah 550W is plenty for almost all single GPU setups. Under normal circumstances I'd totally recommend the XFX, usually do, however right now the price of Corsair PSUs on Newegg makes them really hard to ignore.

CX600 - $40 after rebates, that's an absolute steal and I'm not sure the XFX is worth $15 more.

That PSU is out of stock on newegg. Plus the XFX has more amps on the 12V rail. It is not always about wattage.

The CX600? Oo
It has a bigger 12V rail than the XFX (46A vs 44A) and it is in stock on newegg. Dunno how tricky rebates are (not in the states, and we don't really get them across here) but if you can really pick up a decent 600W PSU for $40 then its a great deal.
Regardless, either is a good choice.
