As far as I recall, the CX600 has a pretty useless 12V rail, check the 12V rating on both units but I'm pretty sure the Antec is better.

The EarthWatts Green is in a different market segment than the CX600, the CX is poor in every way compared to the EA 650D.

Between these two obviously... but I already told you it's a lot more than you need.

I wouldn't call it useless, it's still 480W, which makes the "600W" rating a bit exaggerated, but it's a solid unit nonetheless, and 480W is enough for basically any regular gaming system up to a GTX 580. That said the Antec does of course deliver more power, but it's a moot point if the OP isn't going to use that power

Yes. As Unoriginal Sin said, the CX serie is far from the quality the other series from Corsair.
