Hy everyone, im building a new PC and i need to decide between these 4 PSUs, this will be my rig:

intel core i5 3570k
kingston hyperx 2x4gb 1600 mhz
evga nvidia gtx 670 ftw edition
seagate barracuda 2tb hardrive

PSU:
Cooler Master GX 750W
or
Corsair CX 750W
or
Antec Eathwatts EA Green 650W
or
Ultra LSP 750W (I currently own this one)

I live in Cuba, the PSUs listed cost around $150, these are the only ones available at this price here, I cant buy online so I need an advice about these PSUs and only these ones.
Im sorry about my english, I thank you in advance.

I'd go with either with the corsair CX750 or the antec earthwatts.
See what's the cheapest of those two, and get it, my preference goes to the CX750.
The cooler master ain't that good, the ultra is rubbish.

The Antec costs $150 and the Corsair costs $160, what do you think?

The corsair is about the same quality of the antec, it has more amps and obviously more wattage.
If you need the extra juice get the corsair CX750, but a psu with 650w is plenty for your system.
It depends also on the warranty, see who offers the best terms, probably the corsair one.

Don't throw your current psu power cord away, pretty sure
you'll need it for the Antec. Don't believe they supply one
with earthwatts series.

I think I'll buy the corsair, it's only $10 more expensive and I'll need the extra power in case I want to go SLI.

Yes, if you want plan to add another 670 gtx, the corsair CX750 is definitely the psu to have.
