That 750W looks like junk, it's probably at the most a mediocre 500W. Get the Corsair,

That 750w is a brandless piece of crap thats only capable of around 500w probably.

Get the corsair.

Plus "Crossfire" is not a brand name.

That 750 watt does look to be a "no name" piece of crap to me too.

You should really buy the Corsair 500 watt if it is a choice between the 2 of these.
The Corsair will do what you need and last.
The 750 watt one might (and I stress might) work, but no telling how it will hold up. At least with the Corsair you have a name brand that you can trust and will know that you have clean and steady power.
Just because the 750 is more wattage and less price does not in any way make it better! In fact that should be a flag to you that it is less desirable than the Corsair one.

It will be lucky if you can get 450w out of that generic unit. On other hand, 9800gt is a 110w gpu, and you are sure the 500cx can pull 34a/408w so 500cx is the way to go.
