Corsair TX 650W(2nd hand) or CX 600W new

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I'm in urge to get a new PSU
I've been targeting this second hand Corsair TX 650W and the CX 600W which is brand new from shop. They are both the same price so i've been wondering which should I take? Which one is better?
Do they both have this ATX 12V cable for my mobo (see signature) because i'm missing that right now (hence the psu upgrade) i think it's the 8-pin one that goes for mobo CPU power supply
Would they be able to run high end graphics cards?

How old is the Tx650? NEW tx650 vs cx600 the tx wins easily, especially if it is a V1 CX (they recently upgraded both lines to V2).

The problem with second hand is that you don't know how bad it was treated.. so I would get the CX.

If the warranty still has 3+ years on the TX and it hasn't been beat to hell or opened then I guess it technically is "safe" to buy if you don't mind RMAing it if the guy sells it broken.

Both the used TX and the new CX are more than likely the V1s.
Go with the TX if you can handle the second hand risk, as it is a much better psu.
