That Corsair unit is made by Channel Well...still decent, but the Seasonic is just better. Corsair's more higher end units are made by Seasonic as well like the TX650 v2 and HX650.
I was a bit weary of Seasonic units, I haven't heard of them before but I looked up some reviews of their products. Good stuff. I'll be going with them. A modular PSU will be a new experience for me.

I'd recommend getting the TX650 v2 or the Seasonic X650, just so you have room for SLI/crossfire in the future. A 520W PSU won't allow much room for two cards.
I think I'll go with the 620W Seasonic, just incase I want to go SLI/CF in the future.

Thanks all!
