Better PSU Deal

What's the best PSU deal out of these 2?

The SeaSonic one is 80+ Gold, Fully modular, 550W and comes up to $111 on newegg with GST/HST and Shipping.

The Corsair one is 80+ Bronze, Modular, 600W and comes up to $92.64 on newegg with GST/HST and Shipping. I am trying to save a lot of money atm.

My cpu is i5 3570k, I will be overclocking it high as possible and an EVGA 660 superclocked.

More about better deal
  1. I have one that is 850 Watts from OCZ and it's 80+ Gold rated brand new in a box. Will cost you $100 plus shipping. What say you?
  2. Either one is good to be honest. But if you aren't planning on SLI in the future then grab the Seasonic. And if you want to save money and have some headroom then grab the Corsair. I say the corsair for you is the better choice since you plan on saving money.

    Actually - you can get a gr8 deal on a platinum unit right now:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182271 platinum - nets to $70 and is modular
    also good psu's to consider:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817121094 also platinum nets to $60

    these are excellent deals on ex psu's

    I'm a Seasonic user, but I'd take either of the two I linked above
    in a heartbeat.

    ooops -Sorry, missed you are in Canada.

    this is worth considering:

    Hi again - what gpu are you using?
    of the 2 you listed, I would go with the Seasonic. I prefer
    to go above budget/opening price point(cx) series if possible.

    A quality 550w will run almost any single GPU out there, so
    consider this if you want a good unit:

    http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=59615&vpn=P1550SXXB9&manufacture=XFX
    or this because of value:
    http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=59616&vpn=P1650SNLB9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1324
  5. The OP appears to be looking for a semi-modular or fully modular PSU.

    The Corsair CX Series CX600M 600W is currently on sale for $4 cheaper at ncix.com.
