Default corsair power supplys

At fry's, the 520hx is 100. For 100 also is the 750tx. Whats the difference? Why is more whats the same price?
Also, the 650vx (or tx dont remember) is like 70, while once again the 520hx is 100

whats the deal?

520 hx is modular (its watt's by the way), again for the 650vx, it is not modular.

If the 520hx and 750Tx are both 100 then buy the 750 TX, Single 12V rail and obviously more amps.

The HX series are also energy efficient over the other models. Those are highly rated over many. When putting a recent build here together someone got a little anxious when I didn't go for the HX620 finding the OCZ GameXStream 700w for a better price however.

woa woa woa...wait. Fry's has the 750TX for 100 bucks? Jumping all over this.

And pretty much all of corsair psu's are 80+ certified. The main difference is that the hx models are multi rail and modular. The tx is single rail non modular. Modular psu's are usually more expensive.

BAH YOU LIE!!! FRYS.com*|*Corsair The 750 is still cheaper at buy.com. Got me all excited.
