Best <$100 650W PSU - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Your best option is the XFX XXX 650w (Grey version) as it's the cheapest, and best performing unit in that price category. Though, there are very well performing units in that price category of higher wattages.

They are either not modular, or do not perform as well.

The 650w XFX unit is made by Seasonic and is a bit of an enigma by design. Though it's closest relation is to that of the S12-E Platform used in the Corsair HX650.
It's a solid unit with a nice warranty and plenty of cables for a relatively inexpensive price.

I'm in the market for one, too. How's this Cooler Master one compare to the XFX? From the reviews on the XFX, it looks like a bit of a hit/miss situation on the fan.

It's a solid enhance design but12v capacity is weak. It's more like a 500w-530w unit because of the low 12v capacity

"650W"

I also recommend a corsair 650W one, they're very good quality.
