I have decided to purchase new PSU for my rig but i am confused about the level(80 Plus) of the psu. I run the pc average 18 hours in a day, sometimes whole day. I didn't do much gaming but from now i will gaming for average 7-8 hours a day. So, which PSU should i buy? corsair cx550 bronze or Cooler Master MWE GOLD 550 FULL MODULAR gold(as no corsair 550 gold variants available on my region)?

Please experts help me to choose proper PSU. Off course recommend me from CORSAIR/Cooler Master brand rather than other brands.

Another thing is i need a durable(4-5 years) PSU. I had an antec psu but but it was giving problem after 7-8 months. So please recommend me a durable PSU's

My budget is around 80-85USD. I live in south asia and in my region, corsair and cooler master are most selling PSU's i think.
If possible look for a Corsair RMx (preferably) or TX (not as good as RM but still good), EVGA G3, or Seasonic Focus GX or Focus Plus Gold. If those aren't available the Corsair CM 2017 or later model are good budget PSUs. I personally would avoid the Cooler Master PSUs as they have been pretty bad for what you get and pay for quite a while.

What is Cm 2017? You are talking about CX 2017?
