Sorry to hear this. The Corsair unit should have 3-5 years warranty. Both unit are good. I would go for the Antec one.

Probably the XFX since it has a single 12v rail. I don't like multi railed PSU especially for a high end GPU and CPU like what you have.

thats my dilemma, single vs multiple rails , with the antec you get partially modular cabling, multiple rails which seems confusing on this model when your gpu uses more than 1 cable, but very good reviews. The XFX unit looks great, has a single rail, good reviews, but I am just wondering if this is a rebranded junk box that ocz used to make.

Single vs Multi rail does not matter. Not one bit. You should also understand what a "multi rail" PSU is aswell, before taking a dislike to them.

OP, are you going to SLI in future? A Seasonic S/M12II-520 would handle a single GT 570 very easily. But out of the two you mentioned the TPN-650 would be a better buy.

I would say go for the TPN-650 It's build quality looks good and it's made by Seasonic you can't go wrong with that

With latest PSUs, the last thing you need to worry is the ‘multi rails’. Most are spilt from a single rail. You should focus on the build quality and whether it can produce adequate power.

Like other people have said, forget about the whole single vs. multi rail thing. It is meaningless in 99% of situations.

All XFX units are made by SeaSonic. OCZ doesn't make PSUs.

Contact Corsair, their RMA support is pretty close to legendary, unless you've been real mean to it, they'll replace it for you.
