Corsair TX650 is a CWT PSHII. It's decent, a bit above the XFX.

Corsair TX650v2 and the XFX Core 650W are both the same SeaSonic platform, a step up from the others listed.
Thanks for the info
I looked up the prices here today, and it seems that XFX Core650W is the cheapest of the lot, equivalent to around 134$ (USD) plus taxes. So, according to you I can safely pick this one up rather than the XXX edition. One question though, do you think the benefits offered in the core edition are worth sacrificing the advantages of a modular psu?
Also, which one would you have picked, XFX core or TX650?

Thanks everyone for your help. I have finally bought my Corsair TX650 V2 and MSI GTX560 OC edition. So far I am just loving this new setup. I am sure that I will never use multiple gpus, the most I can do is to buy some top end card like gtx580 at some later date. My TX650 V2 will be enough for that.
