    Evga 1000W G3 or Corsair RM1000i

    So what do people think between the two? Price wise they are sort of close $150 for evga , $190 for corsair. I think the only real reason I am thinking about the corsair is that it integrates with their link/icue software so you can get info and set fans and such. I'm doing this cause...
