Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 600 Watt

vs.
Antec EA-650 Green EarthWatts 650W



(it copy - pasted like that)

I don't need a hugely significant amount of power, but if both PSUs were the same price, what would YOU go? Your opinions please and thanks!

forgot who the oem for the first is (seasonic?)

but the second should be delta, as of a little while ago

both are strong units, no worries.

The Corsair unit is a CWT. It reaches 80 plus efficiency but certification was forfeited by Corsair for the same reasons as the HX series losing gold. It also only has 480W on the 12v rail

The Antec is a 80 plus bronze unit with 650W across two 12v rails made by Delta.

I would go for the Antec, but as much as I like to hate on CWT and their green tape, in my personal experience they make more durable PSUs. (though not by a large margin)

again, it's for nothing large, these things will be powering single 260's and dual cores. I might just hit up the antec's anyways.
