    Talking Corsair GS or TX?

    I am considering either the Corsiar 600W GS600 or the CorsairTX 650 power supplies.
    I am thinking the TX is the better model. Is this a correct assumption?
    Is it significanly better?
    Thanks

    The TX650 right now is mostly the TX650-C which means that the GS600 & the TX650 are based on the same platform.

    They'll get about the exact same performance. Though the TX Series units carry a longer warranty (5 years) and all Japanese made capacitors.

    So I'd go with the TX650

    Thanks this will power these specs just fine correct?
    a AMD Phenom II X6 (not sure which one yet trying to budget my new build)
    ASUS M4A89GTD MBoard
    Corsair 4GB Dual Channel X2
    Hauppauge HDTV Card
    at most 4 Sata Hard Drives 7200RPM
    GT9500 PCIx16 Video Card plus onboard vid card. At this point no cross fire or anything.
    Possibly in the future, really not sure at this point.
    Blu Ray Burner
    I'll overclock some by nothing too extreme.

    Yeah it'll power that just fine.
    More than enough for that matter.

    Unless you plan to upgrade the video cards to, two cards, I would look at downgrading the PSU.

    Save yourself some money.

    I can get it for $70 after rebate, I am going to pull the trigger thanks.
    I prefer to be future proof as much as possible.
    Thanks for the help!!

    TX series is also rated at 50C instead of 40C, with a few minor changes to meet those specs. But in real-world use it makes very little difference for most people.
