Help me choose which PSU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am upgrading a few parts for Christmas, after a previous thread I have narrowed it down to the following things:

X-FI xtrememusic: (w/ my usb headphones)
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=290236

PSU... Help me choose one of these, I hear good things about both but I want to use it for a long time, like 2 years, and the next gen M2 socket mobo and processors.

PSU: Seasonic 600w

OR

PSU: Enermax 600w

This should probably be in the Power Supply section, but whatever.

I was recommended both, so I don't really know.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of all their features... thank you Newegg!

Seasonic has an extras fan and is 24pin instead of 20+4 pin, and that seems to be the only major differences.

I don't really know though, like I said, I've been recommended both so I think they are both pretty good ones.

As well as finding article reviews, I recommend reading all of the reviews for the products by the Newegg customers. They can tell you things they didn't like about them, like if the cords are too short, if a lot of them tend to die quickly, etc...

I'd definitely go with the Seasonic. CustomPC do good reviews on PSUs:
