Both are good. But I'd go with the corsair because of the modularity. MHO

Quality, Corsair 520HX is better. Since they are top line of PSU, the key factor is what type of wattage you really need. If you need a 600W, then you have to pick a 600W PSU instead of 520W.

What is modular exactly? Being able to get rid of cables you will not use?

Corsair- 40amps, triple 12v rail, modular
PC Power- 49amps, single rail

Personal preference, I like PC Power.

Yeah that is it, you attach the needed cables only and thus you would have a much better cable management which would result in better air-flow.

Here's the low down. Both are good quality units. They can handle just about any single graphics card system. If you want a modular unit grab the Corsair 520. If you want a good deal, grab this:

Same quality as the other two, but half the price.
