I'll give you the amperage/wattage issue. There's more to quality than just number of amps on your 12v rails but we still both suggest the 750 would be more than necessary.

While what you say is true of most other PC components, PSU's degrade over time. Every PSU I have had that has failed has always been several years old. I would suggest getting the one with the better warranty. You pay extra for Corsair but you get arguably the best customer service and warranty in the business.

True, warranties are a good deciding factor but like the others have said it is least likely that the unit is going to fail during that second and third year. Sounds like you've had bad experiences with PSUs and I understand completely in your shoes but I had my old mediocre OCZ unit for a little less than 5 years before I sold it to a friend a while back and as far as I am aware it is still chugging along fine. I would suspect the same or better in general from either PSU being suggested.

Back on to topic: I personally vote for saving the cash and taking the Antec PSU.

Thread Starter 
thank you all for giving me such great feedbacks..
those feedbacks and user opinions did help me out alot in picking the PSU..

and guess what..

i got a Corsair TX850w which was on Sale!.. it was REALLY CHEAP!..
i got it for only $99 (converted value from philippine peso)
BRAND NEW and SEALED..
and i was still offered the 1year inhouse warranty and 2year manufacturer's warranty!..

way more cheaper than the HX650 and the TX750!!!..
ahahahaha!..

im sending everyone who left crucial info in this thread REPS+..

thanks a bunch!..
