    That's not compatible with eachother. You're putting an Intel processor into an AMD Motherboard. On topic: TX650 all the way.

    The CS is brand new and better in everything except ripple, but that is merely "great" instead of "excellent".

    EDIT: No wait, for that money on that site I'd get this. Even better and it seems to be very quiet.

    TX650 all the way. I'm not a big fan of CoolerMaster power supplies anyway, but the TX650 is definitely a better built unit. Just the fact that the TX650 is rated for 50w less, but is really only 2A less on the 12v rail is a good indication that the TX unit is better built than the CoolerMaster.
     
    Blue-Knight says thanks.

    Corsair, and yes, jump up to the CS. Cooler Master makes great cases, but I've not heard much about them having good power supplies.
