Oh yes, the 25 bucks is well worth it for the corsair. If you compare Amps, Corsairs are usually well above the others, this is a good thing.
I don't really need two HDMI inputs, as I don't think I'm ever gonna hook up my PC to a tv. So I'll be fine with the powercooler.

Ok so the 600W OCZ is $60, the 550W Corsair is $82, and the 750W Corsair is $90. Which would best suit my needs?

The 550W Corsair will perform as well, or better than the OCZ. And the 750W is a big psu. I run dual cards on a 700W psu. I had a 520W Corsair but needed more pci-e cables.

Depending on you upgrade plans.. realistic plans, the 750 would only be if you planned xfire cards. I'd spend the extra on the 550vx over the OCZ.

Again, only my opinion, and you should get more than mine.

Theres a thread in here on psu rankings......... Hec is crap.

Low amps on high volts, possibly shoddy componets, and cheap construction.

Remember, a good psu can last a few different upgrades and mobos..

the OCZ is fine, even if you add another 5770 down the road, still won't draw more than 450W

So you're saying that even if I decide to crossfire 2 5770s, I'll still be fine with the OCZ 600W PSU?
