I looked for the HX450 and found some pictures but no specs, I later found out that corsair discontinued it and made the VX450W, I don't know why...

I know why they discontinued it, they didn't sell well (it was a bit expensive for what people generally expect from a 450w PSU). They told it to me when I e-mailed them a question about mine (if it could handle a Radeon HD5850 - to which they said it could without a problem) last year as the site already said it was only sold in limited areas of the world.

Anyway, this is a great PSU which is 80 Plus Bronze, which can very well compete with 550w PSU's which are not as good. But as we all know, a higher number always sounds nicer, and even people who know a bit about PSU's don't want to take risks or just don't know if the PSU can actually deliver the advertised wattage. For the connoisseurs, however, this is a great PSU that actually can deliver more than 450w - up to 550w (although it performs below 80 Plus Bronze that way).

I originally had an E8400, a factory overclocked 8800GT (Gigabyte Turboforce Edition) and a single HDD. I've since upgraded to a Q9550, overclocked it to 3.2Ghz (8x 400 FSB), replaced the 8800GT with a GTX 460 1GB, and added a second HDD.

What can I say ? This PSU is ideal for a midrange build!

Count me in!

Oh, and my PSU has a 7 year warranty, and so do all other current HX models, except for the HX1000 (edit: also the discontinued HX52w and 620w), which is only 80 Plus certified - only that one has a 5 year warranty. (the HX450 and HX650 are 80Plus Bronze and the HX750 and HX850 are 80Plus Silver). You need to correct that information on the first post.

Cheers!

Alright I will add the HX450 once I get home from school or if I find time in between my routers class.
