Hey wait! I was talking about PCP&C 750 wat VS. Corasiar 750TX, and PCP&P 610 watt VS. Corsair 650TX, not 750TX VS. PCP&P 610 watt. :O

*sigh* okay. in a nutshell:
the corsair 750tx and the PCP&C 750 have the same efficiency, the same amps on their single rail.
the 750tx is 10 dollars cheaper after MIR.
therefore, the 750tx is the suggested PSU.
