They still make the HX520???

Well, I personally wouldn't pick either of them,

That's a list of recommended PSU's, I would probably aim for a Seasonic S12II/M12II Bronze 520

The HX520 is about 4 years old if I remember rightly.

If you act fast, Newegg has the EarthWatts Green 650W for $40 after rebate and coupon code EMCJKKC49. Deal expires today (10/10).

Speaking as someone who does not like "crap" but also does not have an unhealthy obsession over needing "the best," this is what I would get.

EDIT: Newegg Shellshocker until 10am PST today is the Antec Neo Eco 620C for $35 after rebate. And yes, it is made by SeaSonic (for those who care).

Is this for your "sig rig"? If so, a 25A/450W, quality PSU would fit the bill perfectly.
