Herrow. The Cougar is $70 after savings and has two 30A 12V rails. The Hec is $80 on sale and has two 26A rails and two 22A rails. I'm leaning toward the Hec because it is modular, has blue LED's, and I can claim it's a 1080W like Hec does when I sell on craigslist.

I don't entirely trust either one. Thoughts? I'm poor.

Either/or, after looking for some johnny guru reviews, it looks like HEC actually makes the Cougar PSUs. Go figure.

Do they? I thought Hec Cougar was separate from Cougar, the new German brand.
Edit: You're right. I just figured Cougar was different, since the new Cougar's seem to be getting good reviews, whereas those labeled "Hec Cougar" seemed to suck immensely.

Buy something decent You don't need that much power. A 600W PSU could run your system easily. A quality 600W I mean. So, have a look at what Antec/Corsair/Silverstone/XFX/Seasonic sell that wattage.

I'm probably just going to go with the XP1080 honestly; I'm going to sell this computer very soon, and a 600W will cause some doubts. Among those who would buy a prebuilt computer on craigslist, anyway.

Corsair TX750 V2 @ $74.99 after MIR is a fair possibility too.
... I just hate MIR's.

Edit: ...although, it looks like the TX750 V2 has a multi-rail design.

Corsair only has single rail units

According to the advertising, it does, but according to this review, the TX750 V2 isn't single-rail.
