Need a new PSU

Hoping this is the right place to put this thread.

I've recently bought a FSP Aurum Gold 700W which stopped working after a couple of weeks. I've been given a full refund of £90 and need to buy a new PSu.

My system specs are:

CPU: i7 920 2.67GHz
Cooler: Stock
MB: Generic dell MB that came with PC. Approx 3 y/o
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200 1TB
GPU: GTX 670
PSU: FSP Aurum Gold 700W

My question is, should i buy the FSP Aurum gold 700W or go for a lower priced and lower wattage PSU such as
the corsair CX600?

I am unlikely to upgrade for a couple of years and my MB has only big GPU slot so i wont be SLIing anytime soon.

Thanks in advance for any help.

More about need
  1. If you have the money why not go for the FSP 700w.

    This way you have a little more room for the future upgrades or maybe even for a new system one day.

    Both are good PSU's and will perform well.
  2. Don't get the CX600. It's an entry level unit.

    Antec High Current Gamer 620M
    Corsair TX650 V2
    SeaSonic S12II 620
    XFX Core Edition 650
  3. Do not get that Corsair; it is made by CWT, not Seasonic, using some inferior Samxon capacitors (their "GF" line) known to experience early failure. FSP Aurum should be a good unit; maybe you just got unlucky. Still, if one of the Seasonic "X" series is available where you are, that's the one I would get.
