    Default Which one?

    I'm building a new PC for a friend and I'm looking for a high efficient PSU in a low cost. As much as 100Eur lets say. I'm looking at the Corsair brand since their the ones making good quality PSU. Which of the following would you choose?

    http://www.plaisio.gr/Computers/Hard...cturer=Corsair

    We're thinking something like the CX-600 V2 or the TX650 V2 Enthusiast that are withing the price range. Are they good quality, build to last? Only drawback seems that they are not modular. The first modular i can see, is the 750 enthusiast series, but its more pricey and its an overkill at 750Wm since 400 should be more than enough.

    Feedback?

    The TX's are virtually bulletproof (all 105°C caps, rated at 50°C, etc.). That's not to say the CX isn't good, but there's a HUGE difference between the two. The CX is also only rated at 30°C... which isn't so bad when you consider that everything else in its price range is rated at 25°C.

    What's the build? Do you even need 600~650W?

    Look at Seasonic, prices vary with location? X-Series.

    From that site, the Silent Pro M500 would be a good option to consider. It's cheaper than the TX650v2 & modular.

    No i dont need more than 500W. I just mentioned TX-650 cause i dont see any TX model with less power. Extreme Power supply comes up with 273W.

    System is
    i5-3570
    GTX-660
    2x4GB Ram
    Samsung 830 SSD

    I just need a good and efficient psu on the price range of 100-125 Eur maximum. Modular and silent if possible.

    Is this better? ITs cheaper, closer to the Watts i need, and i think the other was the M series, this is M2.

    Is it as good as the likes of Corsair, Enermax and Seasonic?

    Seasonics are great. Its the last PSU i got since it was recommended to me it on this forum. But its more than 100 and it needs order from outside the country (I got it from Amazon). My friend needs to order locally though.

    That unit is made by Seventeam and currently untested.

    The older Silent Pro M500 has been tested and is known to be a pretty good unit. I would go with it at the moment since it's your best option available.

    I've also heard good things for XFX PRO 650W. Any thoughts on this one?

    So in conclusion its either the Coolermaster M500 or the TX-650W V2?

    For 30 Eur more, should i go for TXM-750W since its modular?

    XFX Core 650W is the same thing as TX650v2, except has more connectors (4x PCI-E vs 2).

    M500 is decent option, other interesting modular options would be OCZ ZT 550W or be-quiet! L8 530W, if you can find them.
