    if it's the same price, get the 750 watt. The TX series I believe is built with higher quality part compared to the builder series. The builders series, IIRC, would be more appropriately named "budget series"

    Thanks for the input! What's the benefits of this over the other?

    And I just saw - sale ends TODAY
    Should I buy it right now or hold off? Do you think that another deal like this will come around in the next few weeks, or is this a killer deal?

    over the CX600?

    More amps on the 12 volt rail, 46 compared to 62

    up to 85% efficiency compared to up to 80%

    150 more watts

    more power connections for add-on hardware(video cards, HDs, SSDs, fans, and so on)

    Like I said, if I was in the market to buy a new PSU, for that price, I'd jump on the TX750. This is probably as good a deal as your going to get on a new quality 750 watt PSU.

    Ok. I have until noon to decide. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to get it before it's sold out or the deal ends. Don't want to miss this deal. Worst case scenario I could sell it if I can't use it, and get my money back easy.

    That's $100 after all the discounts. Almost twice the cost. Not a better deal unless I'm missing something...

    Even on here there are very very few people who will max out that 600w unit you linked. That being said the 750w you linked is more efficient and cost the same. Power supplies don't just sit and draw full power at all times they pull whatever the load requires.

    I see, so even though it is more watts, it actually will use less power especially when being used lightly! Thanks! I would click "Thanks" but I used up my 30 Thanks quota for the day...

    For the most part you would have to check reviews to see which one was better at under a 20% load that's were most units fall off.

    The reviews are about twice as good as the reviews for the CX600

    Ya beat me to it Sttubs. :laugh:

    For one, it is 100% modular and probably one of the best 750 watt power supplies on the market!

    Don't get me wrong, the Corsair TX series are awesome power supplies, however if you want or need a modular unit, the HX750 will probably be more than the Seasonic. Also the Corsair AX series is about the quality of the Seasonic and will be probably close to double the price of the Seasonic X series 750 watt.


    Oh and WELCOME TO TECHPOWERUP!!!!!!!!!

    Interesting. But for my budget I don't think I want to spend more than $70 maximum for a power supply. $50 is ideal.
    And THANKS for the welcome!!! :) :)

    Then yes, by all means grab the TX750!!! It is, as all have said, a great power supply.
