Hello. I would just like to know which of the Rosewill Xtreme Series 950W (the one with two fans) and Corsair TX750W power supply would would choose for a Phenom II x4 945 with a 460GTX 1Gb, maybe two in SLI, 4Gb of DDR3 1333Mhz, a 7200rpm hard drive, a DVD drive and 3 case fans. The Rosewill power supply is currently the Shellshocker deal on Newegg.ca and is free shipping.

Rosewill Xtreme series 950W: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182097
Rebate + Free shipping = $90 total

Corsair TX750 750W: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006
Rebate + $20 Mail-in rebate + $5 Promo code CEMCYVZR25 + Free shipping = $90 total

Thanks for your help!

The Corsair has 60Amps +12V and the Rosewill 67.5Amps +12V - about 78watts difference despite that 200W 'labeled' difference.
Rosewill PSU has a 1 year warranty. Corsair has a 5 year warranty. Both have 4 PCI-e video card power connectors.
There are lots of independent reviews of the Corsair 750TX like this one @ Hardware Secrets

Yea thanks for pointing that out... i should have said it has 20A on +12V1,+12V2, +12V3 and +12V4 respectively... whereas what i said makes it sounds like it's 20A in total :)

And the usable power difference will shrink at operating temperature. The Rosewill is rated for full power at 25 C; the Corsair at 50 C.

Corsair, by all means.
