Difficult to say really. I would prob opt for the Corsair as it has 49amps avail
on the +12v rail, & the OCZ has 42a on the +12v rails. The OCZ got a good rec
from Hardware secrets. If it were me, I'd go with the bronze rated gs600
due to the +12v rail amps & bronze rating vs plus on the OCZ.

Since they're both good, if the OCZ is more than $10 cheaper then
that's the way to go. If it's only $10 I would still opt for the
xtra +12v rail amps of the gs600.

Yes - both PSU's have 2 pci-e connectors that the 660ti requires, and all
modern psu's have the 20/24 pin mobo power connector as well as the
4/8 pin cpu power connector.
