Definetly get the Corsair!

Even better if you can get a HX model! (Modular)

Are those the only two you can pick from?

Out of those two, the Corsair is much better.... The GX750 cant even output ~450w without crapping out.

Yeah I've heard nothing but bad things about the GX750, as in its junk. The TX650 is good, if you can order from newegg and dont mind MIR I've been hyping the XFX 650 for a while as its $65 now, a real steal.

Yeah, that XFX is a pretty sweet deal for a good PSU and it's modular to boot.

But if your choice is between the two PSUs you listed, then the GX750 is garbage and you should disregard it.

Like other people have said -- are those two your only options? The Cooler Master GX750 is a bad unit, so the choice is easy between the two, but there are also better units than the Corsair TX650 to be had for the same price.

Take a look at what Phaedrus has to say about the GX, it's garbage.

Originally Posted by Phaedrus2129 View Post

The GX series is marketed by CoolerMaster toward gamers as a budget PSU. The naming scheme is reminiscent of Corsair's "*X" nomenclature. Don't be fooled. Only the 750W model has been tested; it was found that the +3.3V ripple goes out of spec at 450W load, and the +12V goes out of spec at 550W. If you've read my articles you know that excessive ripple hinders overclocking and can damage components. Thus this is no more than a 450W power supply in real use. The 750W's current price at Newegg is $80. Seeing as how you can get a Corsair VX450 for $65 or a SeaSonic S12II Bronze 430W for $66, that gives this Seventeam-built CoolerMaster product a null value.
The TX is ok as far as I know but not stellar, anything else available?
