Default Corsair 620HX or PC Power & Cooling 610W

For my new setup for July 22 (q6600, 8800gtx, 4 case fans, 1 HDD (will go Raid 0 in future) all planning on OCing) I'm wonder what power supply I should get.

Corsair 620HX at ZZ for 126$ AR Corsair HX Series CMPSU-620HX 620W Power Supply at ZipZoomfly

OR the PC Power and Cooling 610 Silencer 129$ PC POWER & COOLING S61EPS 610W ULTRA-QUIET SILENCER POWER SUPPLY

Any help or opinions appreciated. Thx.

Those are excellent top notch companies, in the PSU department. Either one you go with, you can't go wrong. I always hear of PC P&C's service and quality of their products, as legendary. If it was me though, I would pick the PC P&C, because of that price. It's usually more expensive, elsewhere.
