SeaSonic,Corsair,XFX- Which to buy?

This PSU one of those SeaSonic made PSUs?

Anyone know if this is a great PSU? Debating between this 750, the Corsair TX750w and the SeaSonic X750. I hear they're pretty much made of the same stuff and the only real difference is the price tag.

Side question too: Newegg has SeaSonic labeled as SeaSonic USA. Do they make their products in the US?

TIA

I believe the Corsair model you linked is made by Channel Wells? Although I could be wrong... Point is Seasonic used to make Corsair PSU's if memory serves and either way they are both excellent.

I own a older XFX 850watt (not modular) and it's never given me any trouble at all. Jonnyguru.com is a great PSU review site. IMO that XFX you linked is a solid choice.

You don't need 750w for a 6950. A quality 500w would work fine.

I will be reverting back to Nvidia SLI here shortly or might even go CF with another 6950.

Anyways I need at least a 750 for what I want to do. Just trying to figure out which one is going to be the best for the buck.

I have been reading FSP makes an awesome PSU too.

+1

That XFX psu should be great tho, the Corsair TX750v2 is Seasonic but v1 is Channel Well.

Edit: OK your need the extra power. The FSP looks the best bang for buck to me.

Go with that XFX it's a GREAT PSU and also rebranded SeaSonic..

But I would go for this XFX Core Edition PRO750W

It's 15$ cheaper than XXX Edition (20$ after rebate) but a GREAT unit..

I have seen jonnyguru review on this thing and it did great..

The FSP is decent,especially for the price.I would go with the XFX though,I do believe it is a bit better unit overall.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Looks like most of you agree that the XFX Black Edition is balling and since it is made by SeaSonic anyways, seems to be the better buy.

Probably going to be ordering this tomorrow

That FSP Aurum 700 is not modular unit and also has only 2x 8Pin PCIE power connectors..

Go with that XFX Core Edition PRO750W that I have posted..

Can't go wrong with it and it's only 95$ after rebate..

But if modularity is worth to you extra 20$ then go with that XFX XXX Edition PRO750 unit.. (they are identical just differ in modularity)
