Sig Rig PSU Questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I RMA'ed the sig rig's power supply when I read that it has the bad tendency to... catch on fire...

Anyway! Was looking for a decent replacement. I'm not as versed in PSUs as many, so I come seeking help. Right now I'm looking at:

Antec BP550W
-and-
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX

Corsair is known for their great PSUs, but I've never heard anything but good things about Antec either. I'm also open to other suggestions. I'm obviously wanting to save money where possible, so let's put a $100 cap on it.

Thanks.

*edit: Just to throw another competitior in the ring, the Rosewill Green Series RG630 has gotten good reviews too, from what I can see, and is only $60 ($54 w/ promo code). Hardware Secrets gave it their "golden review," saying it was efficient and good price/performance. Leaning towards the antec though, simply for the fact that it's modular.

OCZ ModXStream 600w looks good too. First build, so modularity is a godsend to help me with cable management.
