They have horrible customer service in my experience and I would just completely avoid them.

That's just my 2 cents.
Which Thermaltake psu did you have? The Toughpowers are built to a higher standard then the Purepowers and are a more modern design.

and the coolermaster doesn't have a 600W they have a 650W which is $157

*NB* Bare I am baring the shame and the embarrassment because I am in australia so expect a huge price difference even though our exchange rate is almost identical.
At that level, the Toughpower 600W can deliver more power on the 12V rail, where it is needed, compared to the CM 600 and 650. I would get the Toughpower. Also, were there any other options at the 600W range at the shop? Just want to make sure you get the best deal you can.

yep there is an option. 600W and 750W I might just go for the 750W if I plan on upgrading(most likely) to a high end card or go SLi.

Yes, get the Toughpower. It is based on the CWT PSH psu and is used by many psu rebadgers and is a tested and solid design.

edit- The 750 is also a good choice for higher end sli and future upgrades. If you can afford it, go ahead an get it.

I wouldn't say hands down. The Real Powers do have their merits, but at the same price point it would be hard to choose them over a Toughpower.

And to the OP, it's pretty easy to decide which one is better when given two options . It's not hard to learn about psus, you just have to know where to look for info on OEMs, build quality and performance. After reading a couple of well done reviews you could have figured it out for yourself.
