never heard of the corsair tc650, and google didn't turn back any results, nor newegg.
If it's a PSU with the corsair name I'll automatically recommend it :/

I'd recommend the HX520, HX620 or the TX750 though.

the TX750 usually has some pretty good deals on it, and is usually cheaper than the other two, so I'd take a look at that.

It was probably the TX650, but i didnt know there was such a beast. The 750TX can usually be had for under 100 bucks after rebates. 60A single rail, cant go wrong.

I don't know about the gamexstream but I have a stealthxstream and I like it. If you buy today you can get the 500watt stealthxtream and 2gb of ram for $32 shipped after MIR.

Price Update: OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500W PSU & OCZ SLI-Ready 2GB DDR2 800 Ram $32 Shipped AR - SlickDeals.net Forums

I have both these PSU's in different builds...both have served me well, no complaints either way.

he means this:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

i would get the corsair but u can get the 750 for a cheaper even if its overkill:
CORSAIR 750w TX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply - CMPSU-750TX - Buy.com

honestly i would have recommended the Corsair PSU, but i know how radically expensive electronic components can be in Europe... i believe the Corsair PSU you've got here was something like 100 euro when i looked... either way you're getting a quality PSU... i just prefer Corsair is all

I have the 600 watt GameXStream, no problems at all. I've been using it for almost 3 years, OCZ is a good brand for psu's. But yea the Corsair is slightly better due to having a single 12V rail.

But uh correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure the OCZ ModStream is on our power supply guide as a brand to avoid.
