Seasonic S12II-620 VS. Corsair GS600 VS. Seasonic S12II-520
Feb 8, 2013, 4:49 PM
I have 3 choices to pick from for a PSU for my old computer with upgraded compenents.
Seasonic 620W Power Supply (S12II-620) / Seasonic 520W Power Supply (S12II-520)
Corsair Gaming Series 600W Power Supply (GS600)
Antec Basiq Series VP550 (550W)
The PC is a rather basic Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 with a G41 motherboard.
RAM currently 2 GB DDR3 to be upgraded to 4 GB DDR3
Hard Disks - 2
Graphics: To be upgraded to HD 7770
Which of these would you recommend for my system?
Please keep in mind that a year from now, I plan to upgrade the processor and motherboard and get an i7 and a suitable motherboard. At which point I don't want to upgrade the PSU again.

All are an overkill for your system but the Seasonic is the highest quality but the Antec is probably the cheapest and still good.

I guess I'll go with the
Seasonic 520W Power Supply (S12II-520)
then. I don't want to upgrade the PSU again if I wish to upgrade the processor and motherboard to a good
i7 and a suitable motherboard.

The seasonic is a good choice will even drive a lot more powerful card than the HD7770 in the new system.
