yes and just as good. if they are the same price (actually which ever is cheaper) i would go with a PCP&C.

Wait the PCP&C is better? what about the other 650 watt PSU, is it better than the 650TX?

They don't have a 650w, just a 610w and a 750w in their high ends..

I don't know about the low end but they have a 500w in Mid-Range

which other PSU? i wouldnt say PCP&C is "better" but they are certainly on par. the corsairs are almost always cheaper, though.

OH I meant the 610 watt, I just looked it up. >.<"

@Nagasama

Are you sure? Why are they so expensive, then?

EDIT:

Newegg.com - PC Power &#38; Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous &#64; 40&#176;C EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Its back!

But the PCP&C is known for having 1 giant 12v Rail, but the Corsair 650tx has 3 more amps but that's probably coming from the extra 40 watts it has

Pc power and cooling are one of the ultimate brands they would continue to run with solid amperage after being shot at a wall at 100mph. Perhaps not that extreme but they are renowned for there quality and make psu's for quite a few other companies that just relabel them I believe. I have a 800W BFG Es-series psu that I believe is a rebranded Pc power and cooling and it has the best capacitors and a good weight to it aswell as 138mm fan which is novel and shows an extra care for design. The switch also says on/off rather then the usual I/O (WTF does that stand for anyway???)
