i have the AX760i but hindsight i wouldve went with the basic AX series all up to the preference really most Corsair products i will stand by

I am now considering going with a Seasonic PSU over Corsair. The only turn-off for me is that they are a little more than I want to spend. Either way any of those two brands would be an upgrade coming from my OCZ stealthXstream 500W.

For wattage in reality I would be completely fine with a 650W PSU but I am considering a 750W just for reassurance if I need it at some point.

This is a Super Flower made unit and very good. The 750W is only a few bucks more.

Seasonic makes very few of the current Corsair PSUs. Those are the HX650, AX760, and AX860.

hence me saying "made" because they're now using Channel Well more frequently in my experience.

$80-90 ideally, but that is somewhat flexible.

Here's a couple to choose from. Not sure if you are interested in doing rebates, but if you are, the EVGA units are a good deal right now.

THis is what I use. You pick a brand, and it shows you a tabel of every PSU they sell, who the manufacturer actually is (SeaSonic makes A LOT of other brands' good stuff anyway) , how much voltage is on each rail, whether or not it's fully modular, non-modular, or hybrid (I believe hybrid has the essential cables built into the unit, and the optional ones modular), and has links to reviews for each unit by Johnny Guru etc.

IT's fantastic for finding a good PSU.

Another great brand to look for PSU's is SilverStone.
