TX750 or XFX650?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Basically i have a choice between these 2 PSU's

The XFX seems more solid and is less generic, plus i know its built off of a seasonic platform but im not sure what the legendary TX750 is on. The XFX one is modular and comes with a few extra PCI-e cables so i can have more video cards it also has better effeciency.

The corsair one is a legend. Especially the 750w version, you get a damn fine brand name backed by thousands of positive reviews, plus a little extra juice (not that i think ill need it) if it is built off of a seasonic platform as well then it would be a choice between more juice and a more well known brand or modular, less generic, and a few extra cables that run at 5% or so higher effeciency.

Which to get, after shipping theyre about the same.

PS as far as looks go i LOVE the corsair one, probobly for the same reason i think visiontek cards are the nicest looking, its all very sleek and nothing too fancy but it looks SOOO sexy.

XFX650 is better and a modular psu but if you need extra 8A and can't over budget, then nothing wrong go for 750tx.

the 650w is NOT based on seasonic platform, rather a PCP&C. it is still a good performer.

What? The XFX (infact all XFX units so far) is made by Seasonic.

I would probably pick the XFX over the TX750... the TX750 is a pretty average PSU. Why are you limited to only those two?

I'd also pick up the XFX over the TX, however if you feel the need for the 750w; here is a decent deal on the XFX 750w: ~$106 shipped after mail in rebate.

The TX750 is only legendary for the number of people who waste money on it when there are far better options available.

The XFX isn't amazing fantastic, but it at least keeps ripple under control, which the TX750 has trouble with.

So is the XFX 650 phaedrus approved? Or should i go with the 750, my personal choice is the XFX, not only is it cheaper but its better overall, plus i like XFX as a company due to their graphics cards and find corsair to be as a whole overpriced (IE H50 and H70)

EDIT- Also why does the XFX unit say it weighs 10lbs? Thats kinda alot, unless its pure steel.
If i got that i would want to replace that semi-fugly green fan since im boing with a blue/black themed case (minus my RAM its red ripjaws ) Could i replace it with any old 135mm fan? And hjow hard would it be?
EDIT2- Just observed at the aegg and it shows 120mm fans and 139mm fans (which is dumb considering there are 140mm fans) but no 135's? Where could i get one? Maybe i could just spray paint the fan thats in there?

The 750w XFX BE is quite abit better than the 650w version, and it's much better than the TX750.
