Very good build overall, go with whichever is cheaper between the two PSUs. I just got the TX 650W. It's nice, lots o' cables. I just put together a very similar build, and it's pretty BA.

btw, be sure to get a decent CPU cooler if you plan to overclock. I always suggest the cooler master hyper 212 evo. cheap yet efficient.

Friend, a PSU will run in your system for the next 15 years, while you will probably upgrade motherboard and videocard and CPU very soon. Its more important to invest in these long term, you need to get it absolutly right the first time. The good news is that you get it once and never worry abut it again.

So, I recommend the Cooler Master Silent Pro, because it is completly silent. I am unaware of Corsair, but get the silent one, PSU noises really disrupt your gaming.

Also, I would sugest getting a $200 videocard, ditch the HDD and invest in a ALL SSD system, you gonna thank me later

If it's on sale, I don't mind getting the 16gb of ram. And for the ssd, I would like the faster boot times ^_^
