dont get me wrong, its VERY close, but the fortron may die before the other ones... so thats why its last. pc power and cooling is one of the best, if not, the best brand for psus... i think vernong said they merged with ocz now... the corsair one is good, but only 520watts, but 12v is very good.
btw teh ocz psu's are rebranded fortron's according to gaara

If there was a thermaltake 750w toughpower for 119, and the corsair was for 129, should i cancel the corsair order and buy the thermaltake?

Edit: Quick, before my newegg order goes through.

The Thermaltake is slightly more powerful....but the Corsair is a little better quality...I'd just stick with the Corsair.

I'd get the Corsair, but yeah if you have money go for the PC power/cooling 610w.

Honestly, you only need about 60 bucks the most to power your system. ****, a fortron 400W will work just fine..

Man, i feel stupid now. I paid 129 for the corsair on newegg. Since i'm such a loyal newegg customer i assumed they had the lowest price. But on buy.com and zip zoom fly it was around $100 more or less. Oh well.....i guess i'm paying for newegg's good customer service. BTW the psu arrives tomorrow.
