Antec HCG 620 or Corsair TX650M

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, I'm about to get a new PSU for my computer and I'm between this 2 PSUs:

Antec HCG 620
Corsair TX650M

It needs to be able to power an overclocked 2500k (not much, probably ~4.2GHz), an HD7850 (possibly overclocked too, not much), ~5 120mm case fans, an SSD and a hard drive.

If you can recommend me a better PSU that is around the same price range I'd appreciate it, thanks.

Seasonic X650 is pretty much the best in it's class, but cost a little more.

Corsair HX650 is a great alternative to your current options if you want modular cables.

The ones you're looking at are perfectly fine too. You can't go wrong with neither.

Both ot them are rather average units.. for that system you only need a <400W PSU... where are you buying from and what is your budget?

Neither of those 2 units are available in my country, in fact, there are no Seasonic PSUs at all here.

My budget is between $200-$230 but as I live in Argentina PSUs are a little bit more expensive, so I'd be looking at a $120-$150 PSU in the USA.

Also, I found a TX650 v2. I am not interested in modular PSUs so I'll go with the most reliable of the 3, I suppose.

Since you're in Argentina and South America is the main market for Sentey, I'm certain you can find a Sentey Golden Steel 650/750W unit, it's on par with the Corsair AX/Seasonic X, better than anything else Corsair has to offer, it comes with 7 years warranty and it's dead silent.

Thanks, I think I'll go with the Sentey GSP750 SM, since it's only $10 more than the Corsair one.

YW!.. here's a great review of the 850W unit, you can expect similar behavior from the 750/650W versions as well.
